Sports has always been a part of my life and cricket has played an important part in it. I started playing cricket when I was in FY of my college because I’m a big fan of Virat Kohli and the 2011 World Cup. There’s no further explanation needed after those two big reasons, Virat Kohli we all call him the King of modern-era cricket and the 2011 World Cup gave us that modern-era King. I played for 3 years as a professional cricketer, attended 2-3 state camps, and played for the kheda district team.
Playing sports has made me realize the importance of sports in our day-to-day life. In the IT industry, we spend most of our time seating and working which drains our mental energy and we don’t get a chance to spend the physical energy left in us. Sports help us release that energy and boost mental strength. Playing a sport that you’re interested in for about 30 mins every day can help us be more productive than usual. Sports teach us strategies to get the result we want, teamwork, quick thinking, leadership, time management, competition & sportsmanship, handling pressure, management & responsibility, commitment, and problem-solving.
There is nothing more that inspires us to teamwork and trust than viewing sports of any of our choice. Though the players are very talented, still they need to trust the entire team to succeed. Sports have unlimited benefits to the mind and to the body and it also can teach us life lessons. Thus, if you have not been a sportsperson in school, why not give yourself a chance to be one now?
