Do you have a talent for cricket?
There is a growing theory that natural ability may not be as important as you think.
Talent, they say, is merely your desire to pursue your goals with single minded dedication.
That's certainly one of the messages from this article on what makes a physical genius by Malcolm Gladwell. It really does deserve reading all the way through, but to summarise, we can put physical skills down to certain factors:
- Genetic physical ability (how fast you can bowl etc.)
- Single minded practice
So although you will be limited by your own neurological and physical limits, you can certainly adopt an attitude that makes the best of yourself by gaining experience, practicing as much as possible and taking the time to review your successes and your mistakes.
