THINK – Cricket is the only cricket book to define what you should think about as a captain, batsman, bowler, wicket-keeper or fielder. Each position is described for the thought process during and after play, and both thoughts for captaincy and batting before you take the field.
The better you compete mentally the more likely you are to win the match and your enjoyment of the game will be greater.
THINK – Cricket is mainly for the young cricketer, but every amateur cricketer will learn and improve by reading this book. Even if you know some of the contents, it is still good to remind yourself – as the authors do annually.
