Cricket Back foot batting Drills

Back foot batting shots are best used when the cricket ball is pitched on a shorter length (further away from the batter) or when the wicket has a lot of bounce.

Through the videos and drills below your players will learn defensive and attacking shots (strokes), whether it's a drive, hook, pull or, if the ball is wide of the crease, a cut shot. If right handed a back foot shot will be played off the batsman's right foot with a step back toward their stumps.

These shots are used to make the bowler pitch the ball at a fuller length and allow less risk front front shots to be played.
