Looking to defend ball after using feet coming down the wicket

Quick feet from the batter are essential when getting to the ball.

When advancing down the wicket, batter must aim to keep head as still as possible, and eyes level.

Batter needs to be in a still position by the time they make contact, and well balanced.

Encourage player to loosen bottom hand upon impact, and maintain their weight into the shot by leaning forward not back. Bat coming through straight s key, with soft hands, with player looking to drop the ball at their feet, making impact underneath their eyes.
