CRICKET PSYCHOLOGIST Dr Rudi Webster believes the lack of on-the-field time is one of the major contributing factors for the steady decline of West Indies cricket over the past two decades.

Speaking at the DML Sports Academy’s seminar on Rebuilding Barbados’ Cricket at Kensington Oval recently, he suggested that to master the fundamentals of the game and to acquire the status of a top player, at least 10 000 hours (three hours per day for ten years) of disciplined effort and practice was crucial.

Sadly, however, he was of the opinion that many young cricketers presently don’t even come close to these numbers and was a reason many struggled to realise their true potential. (SDB Media)
