Sports Psychologist was the Key to Success for McGrath

Tahlia McGrath’s amazing rise as an all rounder for Australia is all because of her psychologist according to her. The Women of the series against India earlier this month, is now playing for the Adelaide Strikers in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL). Her team remains unbeaten so far, and the 25 year old seems to be in great form. 

She described the pressure that’s put on by others and yourself when you’re so young and playing for your country and one of the best clubs in the WBBL. 

Debuting at the young age of 21, McGrath recently put her average up to 79 runs, and also took 4 wickets against India, proving her importance in that middle order. 

“It’s taken me a while and it’s been a frustrating journey with lots of little glimpses and starts, but not consistent enough,” McGrath said. “But it’s just been simplifying how I go about my cricket.

“I’ve matured a lot as a batter and learned how to construct my innings a lot better, especially in T20 cricket. That’s literally keeping it as simple as possible, playing to my strengths and not over-complicating things which I have fallen into the trap of before.”

“Initially I was a bit hesitant, thinking I’m not sure how much I can get a benefit out of that,” McGrath said. “But he did a few group sessions with us, I liked what he said and had a few one-on-one sessions and it’s gone from there.”

Priest Scores 4th Highest Total in WBBL History

Last night, as the ICC World Cup continued over in the Middle East, the other side of the world played host to the Women’s BigBash League. The Hobart Hurricanes took on the Melbourne Stars in a thriller of a match. 

Hurricanes’ Rachel Priest went on to score an unbeaten score of 107* from only 68 balls. With seven sixes coming from her bat, she set up the batting for the Hurricanes, who  scored a total of 152 for just 4 wickets. 

But Hobart wasn’t done with that. With the Stars coming to bat, the Hurricane spinners showed them what T20 cricket is all about. Ruth Johnston took 4 wickets for just 8 runs. It was Ruth’s second only WBBL match. Carey and Strano also bagged a couple of wickets each.

Johnston, the star of the match, who had never bowled before at the WBBL level, proved her worth to the Hurricanes with her 4 wickets from 3.2 overs, conceding only 8 runs, with a four over economy rate of just 2 runs per over.

Rashid Khan’s Helicopter Shot Reminds Fans of MS Dhoni

We continue to be awed by our T20 cricket season, and fans are simply delighted that cricket is back . Every sport was affected by the pandemic, and the die-hard fans missed watching their favorite sports. It doesn’t seem to be the case anymore; fans seem to be getting their money’s worth. Rashid Khan recently did something that reminded some cricket fans of a legend by the name of MS Dhoni.

Not for the first time, fans were reminded of the former Indian captain. He has been brilliant in the game. His contributions have immortalized cricket. His World Cup victories and “helicopter shots,” as well as his electrifying wicketkeeping, will be remembered. He was also deemed the best finisher in the game of cricket at one point.

The helicopter shot reminded cricket fans of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni and CSK

Rashid Khan scored a brilliant knock during the T20 Blast/Vitality Blast quarter-final. He won the Man Of The Match award with his bat. He scored 29* off nine balls to help his team win. Once again, he proved himself to be a capable allrounder. The fans were left in a nostalgic mood after watching one of his shots.

As Afghanistan’s cricketer hit a six, the ball cleared the fence. The use of the helicopter shot made famous by CSK skipper MS Dhoni was brilliant. The former Indian captain and wicketkeeper-batsman retired from international cricket last year. Fans still love him to date and follow his every move.

Here is Rashid Khan’s viral video of his brilliant shot:

The second phase of the IPL is just around the corner. Next is the T20 World Cup. The Afghan team will be focusing on performing well and making a name for itself in the game of cricket due to their participation in the international tournament after the political crisis.

Rashid Khan is a pillar of their strong side. As an all-rounder, he is clearly capable of making a significant contribution to his team. 

A player can change the game at any time, not just with the ball but also with the bat. In recent years, he has become more proficient at this.

When he returns to the UAE for the phase-2 of the IPL, it could also be a deciding factor. Sunrisers Hyderabad will therefore rely on his contributions to win games. For them to qualify for this season’s playoffs, they will need to win some crucial matches. For now, however, all cricket fans will just miss a legend of the sport: MS Dhoni. Congratulations to Rashid Khan! What a knock!
