Get Nervous Before You Bat
Most players experience nerves before they go out to bat - they just need to be controlled. The following steps will help you keep your nerves in check and use them positively when you play.
First things first - go for a jog or have a practice hit before the game starts, either will make you feel more ready to perform. If you know you’re going to be batting, have a gameplan - an idea of how you’re going to play but don’t play your innings before you go out to bat.
If you’re next in, watch the game but not TOO closely - just because the batter in is playing and missing it doesn’t mean that you will. If there’s a fast bowler on, see if you can sit behind him, the ball always seems much quicker sideways on.
Nerves are greatest at the start of your innings so keep things nice and simple. Be prepared to play yourself in and get used to the conditions and remember that you’ll feel a lot better having got off the mark, so look for a single as your first objective.
Finally, always visualise succeeding. Remember past performances when you have played well - you’ve done it before so you can do it again. Good luck!
