To play this defensive shot properly players will need to think about their whole body's position in order to avoid popping the ball up for an easy take.
As the ball comes in players must take a deep step back inside the crease, moving their front foot towards their back foot which remains parallel to the crease.
Their weight should be on the ball of their back foot with their head up in front of their body and their hands up.
The front leg slides towards the back leg with their heel raised and toes lightly touching ground.
Stand tall and keep your elbow high, making contact with the ball just below eye level.
The bottom hand, fingers and thumb grip, acts as a shock absorber.
The complete shot should be player looking through their hands with a high elbow position throughout, close to their head, to avoid lifting the ball upon impact.
Played to a ball short of a length, roughly stump high.
Batsman should have a relaxed and balanced stance - head still, eyes level.
Back swing and step back. Their front shoulder should then dip.
With the base established, weight stays slightly forward. Shoulders rotate vertically, front leg drawn back, alongside the back foot.
Bat decelerates, ‘soft hands’ upon impact. Ball contact under eyes.
3-5 people stand in each net, with one bowler and the others waiting to receive the ball.
Each bowler bowls 24 balls with the batsman getting 3 consecutive balls.
