The popularity of cricket has seen a meteoric rise over the last few years. Especially after the introduction of its latest format, the T20 has become a sensation in the world of cricket in recent times. The huge turnaround in the stadiums during T20 matches have been a clear sign that the popularity of the game has skyrocketed to a whole new level. A recent study has revealed that there has been a step surge in the number of youngsters who have enrolled themselves with the cricket coaching camps all over the world. One will be taken aback to know that countries where cricket was not being played are thick and fast catching up with the game.


The world governing body of cricket ICC is also thinking of new ways to take the popularity of the game to an all new different level. Sources have informed that the International Cricket Council is also thinking of test matches being played in artificial lights that is during tonight. The UDRS is also something that has been under some confusion for some time now. If the decision is passed, players will be able to ask for the review of the umpire’s decision.

Tips for Youngsters

Let us now go through some of the tips that would help an individual to get the best of ideas on how to be a smart player and ensure a great career. First of all one need to make up his/ her mind on whether he or she wants to be a bowler, a batsman or a keeper and once that is decided they can go ahead and have a word with their trainer and start training accordingly. 

For those who would like to be a batsman, should remember that practice is the most important thing to become a great batsman. The likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Rahul Dravid, Ricky Ponting and others have agreed that no matter how much you have it in you will not be able to retain consistency without practice.

However, those looking to carve out a career out of bowling should make sure that they work on their fitness a bit more. Test cricket tests the stamina of a bowler to a great extent. They should make sure that they take lots of replenishments and proteins to make their body strong and able enough to bear the toll.

Those who would like to be a keeper must also concentrate on their fitness level and keep in mind that without being strong enough it would not be possible to keep all through a day for 5 consecutive days during a test match. So get in touch with your trainer and discuss with them all these things in details.

On a concluding note, I would like to have the kind attention of the youngsters who are eyeing a career in this wonderful sport. Make sure that you do not get influenced by T20 cricket as cricketers often use unconventional shots to get the maximum results. Imitating that might harm your bating style to a great extent.
