Step 3:

  • Batsman starts in their normal stance.

COACHING POINTS

  • Feet need to be aligned, pointing down the wicket when hitting the shot.
  • Open chest in order to free the arms out in front of the body and give plenty of room to play the shot.
  • Wrists turn over the ball when playing the shot so that the ball is hit along the floor.
