If its of any help
I tend to be all bottom hand attacking  being left handed always looking to  pull and  hook with a normal mid handle grip no need to change. the diamond shape works  for me as  arms are away from my body which helps bat swing shot momentum if that makes sense.

Yes, your explanation makes sense. I had my friends look at the video of Kane Williamson. He plays a perfect pull shot (video duration - first 30 seconds).

Ok, I have a small window to do a kitchen coaching session in the next hour or so.
Any suggestions on batting topics?

@Buzz, how about judging length - watching hand position and release point technique doesn't work for me. In fact, it doesn't work for anyone I know.

So, how do you judge length early enough to get in position early to make clean contact?

Tips to avoid falling over when playing through the leg side would be particularly helpful for me at the moment!

Good suggestion, not sure I can do that in the kitchen, but it comes from learned behaviour over time and instinct.

Will definitely be able to do this.

Good suggestion, here is one I asked Moeen to do for you
https://youtu.be/6mPG5hGDp2c

And here for @Kulli is the falling over video it also looks at splaying your front foot.
Standard terrible camera work and chopped off head!

https://youtu.be/Y3MZxTBr40Q

Also just found this video. https://youtu.be/jz7LhovatHM
So much good stuff in there on feet movement, going forward and back to spin (or slow medium bowling really)

Another good one expanding on what Moeen describes about opening up and giving yourself options: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1umybq-uBCs

Super video that, shows the clear difference between power hitting and technical strokeplay, the coach in that vodo is opening his front foot and using the power if his hips and glutes to strike the ball a long way.

Important to know both ways to play these days.

It's also about release time ....earlier suggests fuller , later suggests shorter . Release point works for me and most people i know , so if its not working for you it doesn't mean you can't change that .
Something that helped me years and years ago was to get bowling machine practice whereby I'd ask the feeder to change the length occasionally ( subtly,  when i wasn't looking ) . I'd have a very brief window/moment before the ball was released to assess the tilt/angle of the machine head . Seeing the change in angle gave a great / obvious indication of where the ball would pitch , and this is the closest that a bowling machine has to a release point.  This eyeballing of the tilt/angle started to easily transfer over to gauging actual bowlers release points after a while ...... I  can't explain precisely how this occured other than to say the visualization and feel of one transfered to the other . Might be worth a try .
