Cricket Drill Demonstration


1. As the backswing begins, the head, shoulders and back foot move back and across.

2. The front leg is moved back and towards the leg side, forming the base for the shot with the head slightly forward.

Keep the hands high and judge by the bounce and line of the ball whether or not to attempt the shot.

3. If you take on the shot then the arms should swing through and be fully extended as contact is made with the ball.

4. The follow through will either see both feet move round and point towards the path of the shot (as illustrated), or see the front leg raised off the ground, with your weight pivoting on the back foot.
