What do you think?
Fyi the second half of the video is bust...

I also think having your pads lower would help... ;)

I think I walk a lot after my shot but don't look in too bad a position on contact.

For some reason my bat seems to come down in an S shape, I think as the balls delivered and my hands go back my head goes over to point which can't be helping?

In my view your issue is that your front foot, when you move it is pointing straight down the pitch. This causes your hips to open and for your to go for a walk and it stops the bat coming through straight.

If you lean head first and topple into position you should find your front foot stays more sideways, say pointing to extra cover.
That should allow you to hold your shape better.

What about when hitting the ball say through mid on? Should it remain pointing to extra?

Cheers.

Good question the answer is your front will have to open up a little maybe pointing to the umpire.
But at an angle not straight

@Buzz might just be me or does it seem the balls hesding for cover, dont look right in terms of hand movement, hands tucked in, bat reasonably lined up straight(ish) but when playing the shot, the hand move out away from the body initially, then to get the ball to cover they have to comback in and push the bat straight down the wicket (with a twisted bat face)?

It looks good - one thing to work on is really leading the shot with your front shoulder and head - currently looks like your foot goes first then head and your shoulder doesn't really dip into the ball - your head should lead your foot not the other way round - on the shots where this happened you connected really nicely
