Stance
« on: May 07, 2017, 11:54:42 AM »

Been really watching the England team batting on sky today and have noticed all of them seem to almost Have a baseball stance around the point of bowling release.

Is this a new school of thought as didn't those on the know suggest Bairstow would never score big runs like that? What's the theory behind it?

Personally I hate the wide stance approach but I have seen it used very effectively.
Pietersen was an early adopter.

These days it is unusual to see a more traditional stance.

As said above it is used so batsman are in position to smash the ball.

Also stopping bairstow  used to fall over and get out lbw. Since his new stance he has eliminated falling across

I have started doing this for the first time. I've been playing over 20 years and have played two games with new technique 102 and 51. It might be new bat it might be I've dropped down standard a little bit but I'm definitely much more comfortable with bat up technique. I've also coupled it with Palmer open/pointing down wicket stance. Wish I had tried these things years ago. However it is only two games and I will update again half way through season.

I've been struggling with this so far this season.
Any videos on the JB style stance available or explanation?

As said above it is used so batsman are in position to smash the ball.

Pietersen was also 6 foot 4 inches tall and could comfortably crouch down to lower his line of sight. This crouching also gave him a longer reach to drive likes of Dale Steyn's (outswinger) to covers with ease; or, maybe it was just his height that gave him that unusual reach.

Wider stance may not work for short players and club players. I have experimented with it and it left no room for my foot movement. Standing with feet slightly-narrower-than-shoulder-width-apart gives me the right level of comfort, mobility, and base to power my shots. Any things wider, and I find myself reaching for the ball.

As for pros, I don't think those wider stances would work very well in Test cricket. My two cents.

I am a big fan of Palmer technique as it changed my game and results. I think your scores are the result of the Palmer technique than the wide stance. :)

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

Stone good tips here, I scored 200 preseason, and 30 in 4 league games, all bowled, playing a defensive shot each time! I have opened my stands at nets and it felt a bit better, and got 44 Sunday.

I have changed it as My front foot wasn't moving across and i thought i was playing in line, now i know i have to get my front foot moving across.  After 6 overs it felt normal.

Might have to get Buzz's batting book back out.

Been working on this open stance for a good 3 years to try to cure falling over to the offside.
Def has helped improved my game
