Practice vs. Match: Do you play like you practice?
Match day arrives… Then something happens… a weird twisted miracle or tragedy of sorts…
You walk onto the field and everything is just so different, you feel awkward like you have two left feet and nothing works.
Now, this might be a bit extreme, some cricketers can experience this level of shift from practice to match. You will be better aware of how big or small the shift from practice to match is for you.
So what creates this gulf or divide between practice and match? In this article, I shed some light on what can cause this and what you can do about it.
There can be a huge gap between your practice and match awareness. Practice does not necessarily require you to be highly aware and so it is easy to practice with low awareness. Matches however, require a high awareness that can lead to better decision making. What is happening? What is needed? How do I do that?
The learning that takes places
Increased self-reliance and self-confidence, broadening horizons
Increased self-reliance and self-confidence often result as by-products of these tours competition experiences. Playing against different styles of play in different facilities can enhance the individual skill levels of the players.
Time Required For Developing Expertise
The 10 Year Rule:
Scientific research in sport has concluded that a minimum of ten years, or 10,000 hours of deliberate training is needed for a talented participant to reach ELITE LEVELS. This translates into an average of more than three hours of training daily for 10 years. There are no shortcuts; participant development is a long-term process. Short- term performance goals must never be allowed to undermine long-term participant development.
