How can I play the cover drive?

how can i play a perfect cover drive?

Hi Nitin,

The best thing to do is use the search bar (next to the cricket icon) to find answers to specific questions, we have categories for front foot batting, for example.

To help you out here is a drill to explain how to play the cover drive.

Hope this helps,

Sportplan Team

The best way is to tell the bowler to bowl on good length area more than 200 balls a day and get the batter to try and reach the ball and hit the ball in to the cover area!

This shot can b played by asking the bowlers to deliver the ball outside off stump at good length area,bowler should bowl just from 120 degree angle mean bit cross to get good angle for cover drive shot,this is much easy way to learn this shot.After enough practice then come to normal.
