How to become a better cricketer?

If you are a passionate cricketer, you may have thought about this at least once.

How can I be a consistent cricketer like Virat Kohli? Or How can I improve my skills as a cricketer to become the best amongst my peers?

Of course, cricketers like Virat are at a different level but let’s face the reality, they also started somewhere. Most of them started playing grassroots cricket and then gradually reached up to this superhuman level. If we look closely, one of the reasons for their success is continuous self-assessment & skill improvement. We believe that should not be the prerogative of only international or national cricketers.

CricHeroes is constantly working towards providing the same level of insights to make all the grassroots cricketers better, strategically and tactically. Along with a world-class match scorecard, we also offer CricInsights, a deep dive into your own performance as well performance of your peers and opponents to become a world-class cricketer.

Of course, for CricInsights to work, your local cricket matches and tournaments should be scored on the free CricHeroes App. Once that is done, just get CricHeroes Pro membership and start becoming a better version of yourself!

CricInsights is made of these primary modules.

  1. Player Insights
  2. Team Insights
  3. Match Insights
  4. Tournament Insights
