Book Blurb - Pick The Length Like Vivian Richards: A Superior Visualisation Process

Almost with a sense of possessiveness and arrogance, Viv would go about systematically destroying any bowling attack in the world in the most savage and brutal manner ever seen, and in 1999 was officially ‘knighted’ for his prodigious, extraordinary &monumental feats on the cricket field – a regality which not many batsmen have to their name, not even Tendulkar.


The boy from Antigua it would seem had the heart of a lion and the eyes of a hawk and was destined to be among the very best batsmen ever to play the game right from a young age.  Showing promise and performances at rep level from the age of 14, it was evident that Viv not only had the natural exuberance and instinct for batting, but was from a young age itself, a fierce competitor and one of the most formidable and intimidating opponents a bowler could ever cross paths with.


What made Viv so good? It was simply his ability to pick, see and judge the length early almost as if someone were secretly telling him what the bowler is about to do, which conceded to and bestowed him with the talent to demolish any bowler in the world.  In this book we educate and train you in this very facet to cricket which produced the greatest most fearless batter ever to live – Vivian Richards!
