Of course you are!

Don’t play into the false belief that you’re not good enough to reach a certain level or that people will judge you for what you want to achieve, oftentimes telling you it just can’t happen. FORGET IT.

Do what you want to do and work for it. EVERYONE has the potential to play cricket at a higher level and you should know that. You can always be better and work your way to where you want to be.

There will be times where doubt creeps in, and this is just human nature. Even some of the world’s greatest athletes, artists, actors, entertainers and celebrities have had stages in their lives where they have believed that they may not be able to achieve something, or whether or not they deserve it. These types of thoughts and feelings are just trying to sway you from focusing on what it is that you really want to achieve. Don’t believe in it.

The truth is that everyone is given the ability to perform at the same level, I feel the only differing factor may be the time and effort required by an individual to reach those same levels would vary.

Ask yourself:

What’s going to make me a better player?

This is a question you should be asking yourself with every action you take. What is it that you need to do to make this happen? What are you willing to do to make this happen?

A great way to understand this is to look at some of the great cricketers, past and present. To understand their thought process and how they were able to hone their skills.

Some things you should consider:

  • How passionate are you about improving and playing cricket?
  • Are you mentally prepared?
  • Are you physically fit?
  • Do you have the enthusiasm to be involved in a team environment and team sport?
  • How do you handle setbacks and failures, such as being dropped from the squad?
  • Are you a modern cricketer? Meaning that you can easily understand and adapt to the different formats of the game such as one dayers, 2/5 dayers or Twenty20.

What makes a world class cricketer?

A few key areas of focus that you will generally find exist with those that play the highest level of the sport.

  • Preparation
  • Training
  • Research & understanding of the game
  • Ability to develop match plans
  • Commitment to the team
  • Routines

At the end of the day, if you want to work your way into a position of playing better cricket and being a better person, don’t let your occasional doubts and fears stop you. Everyone has them and they are natural. Instead focus on the areas where you can improve and how you can improve.

You’ve just got to remember that you have to believe in your dream, even if no one else does.
