How can I improve my footwork at the crease?

how can i improve my footwork?

Here are a couple of things you can try.

Spend time thinking about how you should ideally be moving your feet to play certain shots.

Visualise someone bowling at you, and where the ball is going to pitch. Move your feet to the correct position, and play the shot

Skipping is a great excercise that helps with footwork and increasing speed. Vary the skipping i.e 2 feet, one foot and double jumps.

I hope this helps.

I tell my junior players to imagine they are fencing before I allow the bowler to bowl. They use their bat as a sword and move back and forward in a sideways motion like a fencer. I also get them to bounce up and down on the spot before they face a ball so they can feel their knees bend and loosen their legs.

Yes, i agree with Mr.Rob Park...do the exercise with skipping rope and one drill you can practice i.e. drop ball hitting drill....

Good luck

Yes skipping is good another used throwing method by someone nearest in quick session and play fwd bkwd but care dont paste early foot.Increse sprint work.Hope this helps
