It’s great to re-connect with Sid after almost 30 years, this time for my 10 year old son. Sid invested considerable time in analysing my son' performance in cricket through an unique ProThink Diagnostic, videos and preparing an Action Plan. Right from the very first conversation he encouraged us to focus on small steps rather than only on results. He closely monitors the progress by encouraging to do daily activities towards performance improvement and provides guidance throughout the week. My son eagerly awaits weekend calls since Sid sincerely cares and dedicates time for his improvement. Sid’s analysis is spot on and very detailed, this has helped my son improve Bowling within two weeks and he has seen improvement in himself through the Resilience technique. As always, Sid is very calm, persistent and passionate about the game. We look forward to continue association with Sid.

Sid approaches coaching with such patience and passion that instils confidence in our training. We have taken great strides to better understand our individual game and the practical and thoughtful drills he runs with us are innovative and modern, and really relevant to the modern game of cricket. His ability to connect with us as a team in a short time has been nothing but impressive and is evident in the way he has been able to tailor training sessions to ensure we are looking at all the different aspects of the game and keeping us actively engaged.

Sid's coaching style is very unique and very personalised. Unlike most other coaches, Sid takes care by giving each player ample individual focus. He clearly works hard behind the scenes too as I received an email per week from him with a well dissected video analysis on my batting. This has been very useful to me as I found watching my videos very beneficial and has improved key aspects of my batting such as my stance.

In a training session with the University squad, Sid’s cool temperament and insightful coaching style acted as a calming, helpful voice and guided us in what could otherwise have been a very hectic net session. Sid provides us with achievable targets and goals in both the short and long term through structured training sessions. He has been a great assistance for me in particular, by analysing my game, offering finer adjustments each time I face or bowl a ball. Sid genuinely cares and dedicates time to the players he works with and I am glad to have him still coaching us in the future.

Since joining Totteridge Cricket Club this season, I have really enjoyed working with Sid. In a short space of time, I have become a much more confident player. Sid, unlike most coaches, genuinely cares about the player and will spend time identifying any technical issues. Sid's ProThink diagnostic and Action Plan is clear, thorough and very easy to follow. It is very easy to identify the areas that one needs to improve on. In regards to my bating, Sid noted that I have the tendency to move away from the ball. Subtle variations in regards to my back foot movement ensured that I was able to hit the ball with more precision and intent. Also, in regards to my bowling, together we have created a gym plan that focuses on building a stronger upper and lower body. Sid invests time in each player; I look forward to working with him in the near future.

We first saw the coach in Sid at the cricket grounds of APCC and even then, it was clear that the thinking and the work which has gone building into the training routine was far more than the 90 minutes on the ground. He had a process, he had a plan, and then he could explain most skills to kids in 4 steps...and all of this on an individual player basis with videography, detailed notes & action plan for prep work away from the ground! Sid corrects the technical skills (problem statement), demonstrates how to master them in practise (Action Plan) and then provides psychological guides to execute skills under testing conditions (Resilience). Sid is technically proficient, individually engaged, a patient but persistent teacher and we recommend his coaching services.

Sid' ProThink diagnostic and methodology helped me develop a technique to marry milestones & processes with the goal of "equity" within my business portfolio. The goal seems achievable now, with the correct amount of focus on the actions. The distinctive advantage of this model is the positive effect of focusing on your end-goal without forgetting what is needed to get there!

I highly recommend Sid as he helped me focus and develop my public speaking profile. ProThink plan gives a structure to the ideas and improves focus on the tasks. Upon initial meetings, Sid follows up regularly; his telephone calls are timely, encouraging, target driven and conversation is summarised by an email afterwards. Sid acts like an excellent mentor and a manager who is always positive.
