Prepared to return into action after a tough period: Aiden Markram

The Proteas batsman Aiden Markram had not had a great time with his bat over last one year. After ‘not so great’ World Cup 2019 in England, he had suffered a hand injury in October of the same year while touring India for a test series.

The 25-year old admitted that the time was frustrating to encounter and he had developed some self doubt over himself. But the prolonged lockdown and suspension of cricket activities have acted like a blessing in disguise for him.

Markram said that the elongated lockdown refreshed him mentally and physically making him ready for the future competitions once the action resumes.

Frustrating to miss quite a bit of the season

The South African batsman said that missing the action due to an injury is always frustrating and toughest to deal with, but now as the suspension of activities allowed him, he is fully and heavily armed with his batting weapons.

“It was certainly very frustrating to miss quite a bit of the season. But for now I definitely feel 100 percent,” said Aiden Markram.

“Probably the most challenging part of being injured is not allowing your mind to run off. I think trying to keep your mind at bay and trying to keep your mind calm and strong when you have time off is probably the biggest challenge that I have struggled with.”

Never thought to give up

Markram further added in his statement that he never thought to give up even while encountering the tough period of the career.

“I’ve never thought about giving up, but I certainly have doubted my abilities. I’ve doubted my abilities especially when I’ve been out of form and at that top level, you’re a few bad knocks away from people wanting you out of the team and people stop backing you and things like that,” he concluded.
