When it comes to cricket, it's all about the fans. The drive to become a professional cricketer starts from being a true fan of the sport. That zeal is essential to get you across the line. At the end of the day, if you don't believe that you belong in the Indian team, who will? Some of the greats, like Kohli, Rohit, and Shikhar, have taken that zeal and perfected their craft by practising day in and day out. Credit has to be given to their coaches and academies who saw the potential and mentored them.
You might think cricketers like Rohit come from Mumbai and thus have an added advantage. But many players have come from smaller cities and towns. Yet, they still found a way to get to a cricket academy. A good cricket academy can and has shaped a player's career in a way where they have made it to the top.
Every aspiring cricketer dreams of playing at the highest level of the game. Who doesn't want to hit the finishing runs in Perth? With the rapid increase of cricket academies, choosing an academy can become difficult. Any kid would love to join an academy where their favorite cricketer is training them or at least associate with the academy.
