Cricket: Back-Foot Defence

"Sportplan is providing me with all of the new dimensions of coaching...
Kanishka

DESCRIPTION

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.

COACHING POINTS

Throughout this shot players should remain side on to the ball.

To ensure players stand side on their back foot should move back and across first, before being followed by the front foot (which should be pointing towards the point fielder).
