    he is doing a training drill where you make step into a front foot shot and hold still while someone throws a few balls down to you… this isnt how he would always bat, its just a drill

    and removed. Not working on and mastering the basics is one of the reason why there is dearth of high quality test players worsened by t20 where u just put the front foot down and smash and test level same players can’t even survive a couple of short balls. .

    True, and I don’t expect perfection in batsmen also. But in my opinion it’s a big fault to have your body falling away or over when playing a shot. My point is that higher up u go in cricket these things become a hurdle in staying at the top as once something becomes a habit it becomes difficult to eradicate it. Till the age of 11 or 12 it’s fine to let children just hit the ball to create a sense of timing and coordination but after that little by little mistakes should b pointed out and rem

    very few shots are perfect in cricket ….however if u do enough things right u are a better place to hit the ball off the middle of the bat …….it is very easy to make comments such as these and assume everything should be perfect ….and everything should be still….u points are valid ……but perfection is the trap that junior coaches fall into ….more experienced coaches look at a big picture …….in my opinion……

    To Thecricketschool. There is no balance, stillness or correct positioning of the foot especially when playing of the backfoot. After playing the backfoot shots the kid whole body falls on the legside, which ones becomes a habit the player will always struggle against swing or fast bowling as he will not b behind the ball while playing the shot. Was watching u playing cover drives, ur backfoot heel is not off the floor so that ur backfoot is on toe helping in complete transference of weight

    I forgot to add… you can tell if the shoulder is correctly turned into the off drive/cover drive because the bat HAS to come from behind the body to create the correct shape. As the front shoulder turns, the bat direction alters so you can hit straight and not “in to out”, or with only the back shoulder. Pause this vid on the drives at the top before the hit and see. A shoulder turn into the shot is KEY for making a world class drive consistently

    May 9, 2013 at 7:52 am

    Jemile.. you might want to make sure his back foot doesn’t rotate round too far as it seems he is hitting with his back shoulder instead of leading with the left. You can see if you freeze the vid, that he is pushing hard with his bottom hand and slightly into the leg side… this is usually a sign the right shoulder is too dominant. Also explains why he likes to cut and play off his legs :) Also… on YOUR demos.. be careful you still LEAD with your left shoulder by turning it into the shot.

    you guys need to checkout the batting technique i use. i call it the powergrip,its all about holding the bat differently, which stops your footwork being out of syncronicity with your shot. its all about balance and power and timing,needless to say im designing a bat with the balance required . this footage is on youtube under “goodwin powergrip” . you will enjoy the fact that i havnt had to copy anyone,cause the past is over,leave it where it belongs !!!!!!!

    He styles after the shot is played lol,

  20. Rahul M

    May 9, 2013 at 9:56 am

    it is not a good idea to change his trigger movement…..trigger should giv the batsman rhythm…..he needs to learn first how to play from the base before mastering trigger…he needs to learn how to play each shot correctly first, then judgement of length and then quick hands, feets and reflexes and then trigger…

  21. pureprotea1

    May 9, 2013 at 10:44 am

    And if you watch cearfully he changes his trigger movement from ball to ball. ( he watches a lot of cricket on TV)

  22. pureprotea1

    May 9, 2013 at 10:58 am

    That kid is an AB De Villiers fan. he plays just like him.

  23. Rahul M

    May 9, 2013 at 11:03 am

    young guy and his front foot shots – The guy is playing the ball inside out…notice his bat at end of the shot. His backfoot at the end of the shot is bend…which means he needs to straighten it to go over the ball…he is also moving after playing the shot means lack of balance..

    Young guy and his backfoot – Some of his square cuts are played to far away from the body and his head not going towards the ball after the shot….he is also trying to slice the ball….

    the 2nd person is tryna mke a foool outa us fr him ihs a bowling machine ih goes whereeva u wnt it to so dts y he didnt move his legs he gt into position. he knew de balll is alwais going dere

  25. lravikiran

    May 9, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    guys the reson we see the batsman plays the shots so accurately is becuz they are told before the ball is bowled to play a straight drive or a cover … so obviously the shots look good

  26. Bedabrata Chakravorty

    May 9, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    @sri Devgru:
    It has to do with your weight transfer, you have to transfer your weight ensuring that your back toe is lifted completely which will help you keep the ball down and you have have to keep your head down while the bat comes in contact with the ball.

  27. RattaTheMuss

    May 9, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    get over the ball leading with head & shoulders foraward, thus driving the ball along the ground. Don’t lift your head at the execution.

    May 9, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    hey guys, can someone here give me a session of batting tips in person please?

  29. lewiedavies

    May 9, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    stronger base, widen your stance, open yourself up a bit more, get your head over the ball, after your shot try and freeze the shot that you have just played….not walking down the pitch and the last thing would have to be to use your top hand more and try not to use your bottom hand as much….looks as you have a good eye tho so you could be a very good batsman :)

  30. 1hamster2hamster

    May 9, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Hi, A couple of things. Your base is weak and your bat path is out to in. As can be seen you are not making good contact on the ball often enough. Look at the over rotation of the back foot. Rocking onto the side of your big toe will help to limit hip rotation and negate the out to in bat path and establish a better base to strike from. Good luck.

    May 9, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    yo man ur ok so am i but im good at playing drives u need to siqing ur bat more and ur stright drives are off

    yo buddy weres ur flick shots at the ball is going down leg??

  33. SriDevgru

    May 9, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    again brilliant playing sir!
    But i wander if you could help me and maybe others on something i have trouble with when i try to play a drive shot?
    You see when i play a drive my backhand is more dominant and takes the most out of it then my front. I am affraid that when i do play this shot i could give an easy catch because chances are that my driven ball would go up rather then rolling over the ground.
