Sports at international level require you to perform at the best of your ability and be physically fit. However, Cricket values you slightly more when you have better skills despite you not being the best athlete. For example, as a bowler – can you spun the ball or swing it both ways or as a batsman – can you bat long hours and score big? The game wants you to be very best in your particular skill and raise the bar with time and experience.
It wants you to be a perfectionist, it wants you to be an artist with your unique collection, it wants you to be something more than just a player. Don’t agree? The video here will show you that how two best spinners of this era – Graeme Swann (ENG) and Muttiah Muralitharan (SL) compete to knock a 50p coin (Yes, a 50p coin!) kept on a glass over the off-stump without knocking the glass or wicket. This is Perfectionism, This is CRICKET!
