Monday Mentoring Ep05 - Game day mindset

We got this question from one of the members of The Cricket Mentoring Community during a LIVE Q & A with Scolls.

Q: Couple of questions to you around Game-day Mindset. 

1) I felt like I was in a Negative frame of mindset last Game. Maybe, I lacked the motivation compared to the other games I played this season!

Any tips/advice around how to change the story (narrative) in my mind to be more positive? or any other advice in general around, how to perform close to your best, if not best, on the days when you lack motivation before a match?

2) Any advice around how can I be more Switched ON before a Match?

Have a listen to Scolls answer in this Monday Mentoring Episode 05. To become a member of the Cricket Mentoring Community, head to www.cricketmentoring.com/community and make use of our 7-day free-trial.

Question: How do you decide if a trigger movement is the right thing for you or not? On somedays I seem to be playing well when I move back and across but on others I play better just staying still until the ball is released.

Monday Mentoring Ep03 - How to play the short ball (bouncer)

Hey Legends!
Welcome to Monday Mentoring!
Every Monday we will be sharing a question from our Cricket Mentoring Community with you.

 

This week:

Question: When I'm training to play short balls (with someone chucking them down from the other end), I generally play them quite well.

But when I face short balls in the nets, I tend to hesitate and move away. I'm guessing that's because I prepare myself for a short one during throwdowns, but they're a lot more unpredictable in the nets. What's a good way to solve this challenge?

Shaun Marsh discussing the path to becoming a professional cricketer and family life

Shaun Marsh discussing the path to becoming a professional cricketer and family life

March 4, 2021

G’day legends. Welcome back or welcome to the Cricket Mentoring Podcast. It’s been a while since we published an episode so it’s great to be back. Thank you for listening!

The idea of this podcast is to share the unique stories of cricketers, coaches and performance experts, with the aim of giving you; serious & committed cricketers, coaches or parents, some techniques, strategies and inspiration so you can become a better and more confident cricketer and live a better life.

This episode is with one of Australia’s best batters over the past 20 years. Shaun Marsh, or SOS as he’s known in the cricketing world made his first-class debut way back in the 2000/2001 season and as he approaches his 38th birthday, was named the domestic cricketer of the year for the second year in a row which shows he’s still got plenty of high-quality cricket ahead of him.

Only a couple of days ago, SOS passed Justin Langer as the highest ever run scorer in List A cricket as he scored his 19th List A century in WA’s victory over South Australia at the WACA. SOS has represented Australia 126 times across all formats and has scored over 5,000 international runs with 13 centuries. At his best, there aren’t many better players in the world!

SOS has been a great mate of mine for a long time so it was nice to finally sit down and hear more about his story and how he goes about his batting.

In this episode SOS shared:

  • His reflections of the most recent Big Bash
  • Hie earliest memories of playing cricket
  • How he trained and what his teenage years looked like
  • What he remembers of his Test debut where he scored a century on debut
  • Scoring 140 against the incredible South African bowling attack of Steyn, Morkel & Philander
  • His memories of the first ever IPL where he won player of the tournament
  • And how he transformed his life on and off field

This episode, recorded in February 2021, is the first part of a longer conversation that is available for the members of the Cricket Mentoring Community. If you’re keen to hear the whole conversation with SOS where we dive into his mindset, routines, preparation, how he transitions between formats and a whole lot more, then you can join the Cricket Mentoring Community today.

In the C M C you also get access to me as this is where i’m spending my time helping serious and committed cricketers from around the world learn and develop themselves, their skills and their mindsets. No matter where in the world you live or where you’re at in your game right now, if you want to score more runs or take more wickets and feel more confident on the cricket field then the Cricket Mentoring Community will help you. I hope to see you as a member soon!

Bhavi Devchand - From the toughest time in her life, to being teammates with the worlds best

Bhavi Devchand - From the toughest time in her life, to being teammates with the worlds best

August 17, 2020

Today’s guest is a professional cricketer, a mentor of ours and the head of female cricket at Cricket Mentoring and someone who has become a friend over the past few years.

Bhavi Devchand is currently contracted with Victoria and is training and rubbing shoulders on a daily basis with some of the world’s best cricketers including Elysse Perry and Australian captain Meg Lanning. While she’s living her dream, it certainly has been an easy run and she’s had her fair share of setbacks and disappointment. 

As one of our mentors, I probably should have shared Bhavi’s story a long time ago but had I done so, we wouldn’t have got the last 15 months of her story, which as she says, has been some of the best and worst times in her life. The setbacks she faced, forced her to step out of her comfort zone, which has resulted in some of her biggest growth as a person, which she shares with us throughout this podcast. 

This is an awesome story of challenging yourself and getting out of your comfort zone as well as going back to why you started pursuing cricket...cause you love it. I have no doubt this episode will give aspiring cricketers hope that anything is possible and hopefully it inspires a young boy or girl somewhere in the world, to chase their dreams despite the obstacles that you face.

Lets get into it.

The 6 Pillars of Success - Tom Scollay

The 6 Pillars of Success - Tom Scollay

August 10, 2020

I now know what makes Steve Smith, Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson so special. They understand themselves and know what they need to do in order to prepare themselves in all 6 pillars, so that they have the best chance of succeeding, every time they step onto the field.

For me, it wasn’t a lack of skill. It was a lack of understanding. It was a fluke if everything aligned both internally and externally, and hence why I was inconsistent.

 

Through my personal experience and leanings, I now believe that there are 6 pillars to success, that are true for almost every athlete.

They are:

  1. Technical
  2. Tactical
  3. Mental
  4. Emotional
  5. Physical
  6. Lifestyle
