How to improve your batting timing and concentration?

I want to improve your batting timing and concentration. I want drills.

1.first get ready to face the bal.......

2.watch the ball carefully.........

3.choose your foot work(must) depend upon delivary..........

4.pick up the ball earlier, it to use hit the ball very hard.........

A difficult question to answer. My advice is as follows....

Timing comes from good technique, and time spent at the crease. Spend long enough at the crease and your judgement of incoming deliveries improve. WRT concentration, I find personally that a mental note to ones self after each delivery (between balls) achieves two things. 1. Maintains focus on task and 2. Allows for adjustments which will improve timing. Don't try to strike the ball too hard, doing this tends to lead to loss of technique and as mentioned earlier technique and timing go hand in hand. Focus from ball 1 is imperative! Hope this helps?

Timing--- use the hanging ball, ensure you have a straight bat and try to middle the ball...do atleast 500 strokes a day. You may choose to strengthen one stroke at a time..like a back foot cover drive or a front foot cover drive..depends what you are good at or want to be good at.

Concentration--if you do 500 strokes a day, you gain concentration of 50 balls. Ensure you do this drill with your helmet/pads/gloves on. You need to simulate what you will be doing in the match...to the extent possible.

For your eyes only--- Take 5 balls of different sizes---keep the smallest at the nonstriker end and the largest on the good length spot and others in between in that order. Start tracking the ball from the non-striker end to the good length with your eyes wide open and seeing the balls clearly. Repeat it 100 times.  You gain concentration of 20 balls.

Hope it helps. I will post more later...
