  • There are no separate age rules for girls. Ideal age to start practicing cricket is 5-13 years. And many cricketers play at the age upto 40 or beyond it. So age is only a number. You should practice daily and focus to improve your performance. As you are 27 right now. So you still have almost 10 years to play.
    But if you are passionate and dedicated and want to play cricket you can still start play cricket. Age doesn't matter. Now you should join a good cricket academy and start practicing and do work hard. You can play at district and state level. You can play for enjoyment and can fulfill your dream.

  • It is good that you have interest in cricket and you want to make a career in that. Your age is only 27 and from that point of view it is neither delayed nor late to make efforts in this direction. If you want to improve your performance and learn the skills of this fascinating game then the first and foremost thing is to join an academy in your area and learn the intricacies of the game there.

    There are many cricket academies and coaching centres in Lucknow but the prominent ones are SMR Cricket Academy, Central Cricket Club, Colvin Cricket Academy and Yorker Cricket Club. You can join one of them after finding the details of their facilities and fee structure.

    That is one part of the story. The most important aspect in playing cricket and to that matter any other game is physical fitness and you have to give full attention to that. For that you will have to do a daily routine of exercises and walks to keep the body fit for playing the game with vigour and stamina. You will have to avoid fatty and junk foods and I am afraid you will have to go for fibrous and healthy foods instead. A good physical stamina is a must for becoming a successful player.

    Once your learning in the academy is over you must search some club or sports group which may give you a chance to play in the local matches and depending upon your performance the other managers and coaches may recommend you for better matches elsewhere. This is the route you have to choose to come up and progress in this line. Once you establish in the district level matches then there is ample chance that the managers and other important persons in the sports arena can recommend you for outside matches and that will pave a way for you to slowly move to the national level. It is easy to say so in a simple 2-3 sentences here but there is a sustained hard work, determination and focussed approach required to achieve that gaol.

    Remember, there is cut throat competition not only in the academics but sports also and you have to keep in the mind that you have to perform exceptionally well if you have a real desire to progress in this game to reach the top. If you have an interest and passion for cricket, you will achieve the success in it. All the bast.

    Knowledge is power.

  • If you have the real passion to go in the profession of Cricket, there is no harm and trying this game. However, mind your age and as you are already 27, no further delay is to be made in choosing this profession.
    You have to look around the locality where you are putting up. If there are certain clubs offering the players the chance to play cricket in a regular way so that your skill improves with a consistent practice. Once you feel confident with your performance go ahead for the Cricket Academy situated in Lucknow such as Colvin Cricket Academy, Central Cricket Club,
    Here you may learn numerous tricks to play the matches effectively. Never hesitate to ask the related questions pertaining to cricket hovering in your mind time to time. This will further reinforce you skill in the area you want to play.
    If they organise the tournaments between the two towns, take active participation. Your better performance in such tournaments will boost your confidence level.
    With the improvement of your performance, your manager may encourage to play the matches in the district level. You need not perturb unnecessily and play with your utmost confidence. Your patience, dedication and total devotion would pay you result ultimately.
    Your performance will be the main criteria for your selection in the National - level.
    However, you need to follow certain simple rules to hit the success. These are as follows -
    1) During the entire period of practice, shed your negative emotions whatsoever.
    2) Be focussed to your own goal.
    3) Be particular to your diet taking enough milk and other nutritious providing you enough energy to sustain your activities smoothly.
    4) Enough sleep is needed in the night so that you may maintain your energy level in the day time.
    5) Discuss with your coach regarding your plus points and the weak points. Ask him how you can transform the weak points into a plus one.

  • You are 27 years old. You want to play cricket at any level. You want to play as you are a big lover of this game. 27 years is a little late. However, you need not worry. If you have a strong desire, you will be successful. So start as early as possible without any further delay. Better late than never.

  • I am impressed with your passion for playing cricket and feel that you can definitely make it if you have a real interest in it. From your query it is not clear whether you have some experience of playing or you are a beginner. The approach will be a bit different in those cases. Anyway, I am assuming that you are a beginner. Immediately, join a local sports club and ask the coach or any player there to teach you the fundamentals and for at least one month you practice this game for at least 2-3 hours a day. Once this feat is accomplished join a good academy in your area, Lucknow where you will learn the techniques of the game and other skills necessary to play it in a better way. Now a days Govt is giving good thrust and importance to this game and due to that there is a mushrooming of cricket clubs, coaching centres and academies everywhere in our country. So go through the local yellow pages and contact some good academy for admission.

    After completing the learning from the academy you can start participating in local matches being arranged by the local cricket associations and groups. You may have to join one of them and if you show a good proficiency in the game the other clubs might give you an offer for playing for their team. So with hard work and determination there is no reason why you can not make it happen. Today women are doing excellent in all the areas and cricket is no exception. To get motivated, you can go through the struggles of other women cricketers in our country who have today reached the national level only with their hard work and focussed approach.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
