How to be a better cricket player: the three most important lessons learnt by the greats
Anuj Jain has a very simple message for his contemporaries in the cricket world.
It’s all about what you can do, he says.
It is the third time Anuj has spoken to this reporter.
In the past two days, he has been travelling to the West Indies to watch the Caribbean Test match between England and West Indies.
He is a cricket fan and his favourite player is Sachin Tendulkar, but he has never played for India.
He has only played a few years in India and England.
He had been invited to watch his team play Sri Lanka on the tour of New Zealand.
On his last visit to India in February, he was shocked to find the Indian cricket team in a state of complete disarray.
The team’s captain, Virat Kohli, was out on international duty, while the batting order was filled with spinners who could not handle the ball.
The team had lost seven matches in a row, losing at least six in each of their previous four games.
The players were desperate for a result.
On a tour to New Zealand in January, Anuj’s wife, Prashant, told him about the turmoil in the team and the lack of leadership from the team.
Prashad told him to check out the team’s website, read the articles, ask around and see if the players knew anything about the game.
“That was the biggest lesson I had learnt from the first three months,” Anuj says.
“We are going to be in the middle of a very big crisis now.
I need to take the reins.”
He had gone to England for a three-match tour, and his wife was worried about him.
Anuj had no interest in playing cricket.
“I don’t want to play,” he said.
“You have to be professional.
I don’t even want to be an assistant coach.”
He said that he would leave the Indian team in January.
He wanted to play in the Caribbean, but the players were adamant that they would not allow him to play.
Anj’s wife told him that he could play in England, but only if he could attend the Tests.
Anaj said he would go to New York and then fly to the Caribbean.
But he had to know for certain that the team was in the midst of a crisis.
“It is all about the results,” Anj says.
He will go to England, and then India.
“But there is no cricket here.
It is all cricket in New York.”
In the Caribbean and New York, Anj was convinced that he had made a mistake.
But after a couple of days in the airport, Anaj had a feeling that something was wrong.
Anoj told his wife that he was leaving the team for a few days.
But then he told Prashants, “I am going to the United States.
I want to make my presence felt here.”
But his wife wasn’t convinced.
“He told me that I should go to America, but I don,t know where.
I have to make a decision.
I think he is a liar,” she says.
But she believed him.
“After he left for the United State, I told my parents.
We are in shock,” Prashati says.
Pradesh says, “If he has cheated us, it was because he has lied.
He said he wanted to stay in India, but there is nothing here for him.”
Anuj, meanwhile, was in New Delhi and on the phone to his family.
“The next day, he called me and told me he would be home in a few hours,” Pradesh tells me.
“At that time, I was worried.
But it was not till the next day that I found out.
I called him and said, ‘Anuj, come to me immediately.
I am waiting for you.'”
Anuj’s mother and father rushed to India.
Anja and his brothers, who were away for a week in India to attend a cricket tournament, arrived in New Jersey.
Anju had already been in New Zealand for a couple days, but was still struggling with his feelings.
“My mother was the first to reach me,” he says, tears welling up in his eyes.
“She was so proud of me, saying I had done so much to improve my game.
She told me, ‘If you go back to India, it is because of you.
You are the reason why we have been able to reach this stage.'”
Anuj said, “You are my hero.
You have brought so much happiness to our family.”
Anja, who was playing in a league in England when he left, had been playing against Indian cricketers in the UK.
“Every time I was in India I would ask my friends if I could go to India and play,” Anju says. His
