The Domino Effect & The Psychology Of Batting Collapses

Introducing the first in a series of cricket psychology videos in association with Pushback Psychology, this one focussing on the domino effect and how it relates to batting collapses.

Watch as Helen Staff talks you through the event (the batting collapse) and the emotional contagion that this can create in a dressing room.

Then, she explains the characteristics that players take on when batting during a collapse: the fallen domino, the brick and the knife edge.

Which ones do you recognise and which would you equate with current cricketers?
