dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study was to examine the use of three self-talk dimensions (overtness, valence and frequency) between two top and two lower order cricket batsman. The batsman selected took part in a recorded net session using a camera and microphone capable of recording the overt (out loud), valence (positive or negative) and frequency selftalk uses. Assisted with edited footage of the net session, semi-structured interviews took place to receive explanations surrounding the use of the self-talk dimensions. The interviews gave an opportunity to examine the covert (inner) use of the measured self-talk dimensions that the net session was unable to record. It was found that the top order batsman used more of the overtness, valence and frequency self-talk dimensions during batting performance compared to lower order batsman. It was reported that self-talk use increased confidence, concentration and persistence as well as emerged uses of the relaxation and psyching.en_US
