I realise this is an old thread but just wanted to say thanks for the posts. It has been really helpful to have a starting point and remind myself what I am aiming to do when getting back in to cricket. Probably the most helpful thing I've found is to periodically rewatch the videos (really like the Ramprakash, ABdV and Ponting videos) as there is always a little bad habit I've slipped back in to or small detail I didn't fully appreciate from a first watch. Ta!

When I had a lot of technical issues i saw a coach who gave me some well meaning advise, to bat in my stance with the bat between my legs rather than in 'normal position . I tried this a lot. It did not feel comfortable doing it.

So I watched ramprakash videos over and over again and just took one thing from it-balance.

So just tried to copy what I saw ramps doing and its def helped.original stance but just worked on balance at the crease-trying to stop the head going over to offside(right handed)

Sky sports did a video on ab de villiers called "white ball king". I think the skysports original link below is only accessible to UK viewers.

Anyone has link to this video accessible to non UK viewers.

The Wasim Akram tip about the thumb is very interesting, might give it a go next time I'm in the nets.

I gave this a go tonight and when I got it right it made a heck of a difference. Also, I hadn't ever given the seam/ ball much thought but am a sucker for a bit of OCD and over complicating things so found that fondling the balls to get the grip just right also made a huge difference *

Masterclass with KP http://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/cricket/10966164/kevin-pietersen-masterclass


This is particularly good. Lots of focus on playing/watching the ball and moving your head to the ball to play your shots. Keep batting simple.

Excellent stuff the KP video.head is so important most of us are not that good we can do without foot movement but balance and a still head is all I work on in winter practice

Love him or hate him he's a fantastic batsman

To add to the "Don't worry about footwork" school of thought, there is a story about Majid Khan by Peter Walker in his book Cricket Conversation:

Quote
At the windswept, icy county ground in Derby in 1969, Majid put
on the most memorable exhibition of batting skills it has been my good
fortune personally to witness. It took place in the Derbyshire nets
during one of those seemingly endless breaks waiting for the heavy
overnight rain to drain through a waterlogged outfield. Huddled around
the medieval dressing-room brazier thoughtfully provided by the Derby
committee to combat the spine-chilling draughts that used to waft
through the racecourse ground pavilion, the former headquarters of the
county, the Glamorgan team's conversation turned to the art of
batting.

We had just come from a game against Sussex where Jim Parks Jnr had
made a hundred against us on an unpredictable wicket. We agreed that it
was the speed and precision of his footwork that had kept us, and Don
Shepard in particular, at bay. At that time, Shepard was one of the
country's most feared bowlers, a man of immaculate length and
direction who bowled off-breaks at a brisk medium pace. On a turning
wicket he was virtually unplayable, and touring teams in this country
had gone away from games against Glamorgan at Swansea with a sigh of
relief that the myopic England selectors did not include him in any of
the Test sides.

 While the discussion continued to and fro across the brazier,
Majid, never at any stage of his career a talkative man, sat silent,
orientally impassive. It was only when we had appeared to have
exhausted all line of debate that he spoke : "You don't need any
footwork in batting, just hands and eye". In terms of length, this
amounted to a major speech from Majid, then in his second season with
Glamorgan, having joined on a special registration in 1968, the year
after he had toured the UK with Pakistan. The Welsh county committee
had no doubt been influenced in their signing of him, by his innings
of 147 in eighty-nine minutes against Glamorgan at Swansea and the
fact that his father, the distinguished Indian cricketer Dr Jehangir
Khan, had been the pre-war Cambridge contemporary of Wilfred Wooller,
the Glamorgan secretary. These factors quickly helped to forge a bond
which was to last until 1976.

 At Derby on that bleak day in June 1969, Glamorgan were on the
crest of a winning streak which lasted throughout the season,
culminating in them taking the Championship for the second time in
their first-class history with an unbeaten record to boot, the first
time this had been achieved since Lancashire in 1934. Success is a
heady brew and there were many challengers to Majid's claim that
footwork counted for nothing.

 Within fifteen minutes, three of our front-line bowlers,
including Don Sheperd, lined up in a net outside with Majid padded up
at the other end about to have his theory demolished. For twenty
minutes, on a rough, unprepared, and quite-impossible-to-bat-on wicket
where the ball flew, shot, seamed and turned, Majid Khan stood
absolutely motionless, parrying the ball as it lifted, cutting or
hooking unerringly if it were wide, driving with frightening power if
overpitched and swaying out of harm's way when it lifted unexpectedly.
Unless he allowed it, not a single ball passed his bat, not a chance
was given, not a false stroke made. The bowlers were at full throttle,
yet by our own reckoning afterwards that twenty-minute session must
have yielded the young Pakistani around 75 runs ! He had just defied
every known textbook instruction, improvised strokes that just did not
exist and, without uttering a word, had emphatically made his point.
In the presence of genius, no rules apply.

^ It is very easy to overthink batting and cloud your judgement. I find the biggest challenge this season was to keep my technique simple and my mind clear - neither happened. :D
