To coincide with the Launch of my new book titled ‘Psychology of cricket’ that I have co-authored with Dr Jamie Barker I thought I would share a few thoughts on the psychology of the game in my blog post this week.
Cricket is an interesting game, with many facets, but I think a significant aspect of cricket – like many sports is confidence.
Form is everything in cricket. Players often talk about either being ‘in form’ or ‘out of touch’. But what does this term ‘form’ actually mean? For many cricketers they play best when they are in-form. But the question remains, what do you do when form deserts you? Most players get their confidence from how they are playing. It stands to reason really. If you are scoring runs and taking wickets you feel far more positive about your game.
