Choose Cricket as Career or NOT?


By: Meenal Sinha

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. As far as cricket is concerned those who are obsessed with playing cricket they should keep some points in their mind like: :

Cricketers need to be athletic, naturally gifted people who are exceptionally talented in at least one of the THREE ASPECTS of the game of cricket. 


  • A career as a cricketer is for somebody who is willing to put in a lot of hard work before tasting success. 


  • They must be willing to sacrifice their education and even spending time with family if they want to get noticed by scouts and selectors.


  • A career in cricketing is only for those who can deal with pressure and live off a low income or have family support while they are still in their early days.

Well said by master blaster Sachin Tendulkar 

Before you lay a foundation on the cricket field, there should be a solid foundation in your heart and you start building on that. After that as you start playing more matches, you learn how to score runs and how to take wickets.”


You know your capabilities, there are no limits, the only limits you should know about the ones you set for yourself. Many people stay aback thinking about failures and try to cultivate their interests into another field instead of chasing their dreams. If you are passionate about Cricket then definitely you should go for it without a second thought. But if it is just an hobby it can’t be opted as career, it’s better to give up on it because wrong decisions may lead to destruction. If cricket is a religion, players are the god. So do it with passion or not at all.
