Cricket: Ian Bell - Cover Drive

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

DESCRIPTION

Ian Bell was famous for having the best cover drive in world cricket.


Batters should always be looking to score runs. When a bowler delivers a half-volley, it should be scored off and the best way of doing this is by playing the cover-drive.


Watch this drill to see how you can coach your players to drive like Bell!

COACHING POINTS

  • Watch the ball onto the bat
  • Leading shoulder has to turn towards the pitch of the ball
  • A 'good' stride without over striding
  • Head is over the front knee
  • The toe of the bat should go towards where the ball goes
  • It doesn't matter whether its a check drive or a full extension
