How you handle criticism can make or break you as a cricketer. Internet trolls use to affect Mitch Marsh but know he knows to let it go. Whatever you do in life or even how you play your cricket, not everyone is going to like it or agree with it. You have to let it go and be yourself. For me personally no matter where the criticism comes from I try to work out if it can benefit me or if I need to let it go. If it hurts me or I get emotional about it I know that I may believe it to have some truth in it. So I take it on board and learn and grow from it. If it sounds like rubbish I just let it go.
I let it affect me way too much throughout my career. Especially from people in my own team. You just have to be yourself regardless of what others say.
I believe now that the more comfortable you get and the less you care about others criticising you the better you will play and the closer you will get to international cricket.
Criticism can come from the media, internet trolls, team mates, coaches, selectors or even your family and friends.
