Good tips here lads- an easy one if you pick the bat up as normal look if your bottom hand is right near the shoulders of the bat or a long way from the top hand. If it is move the bottom hand up a bit

Easy to practice in the nets this one, if the bottom hand is up a bit it's a bit easier to work together.

Bit harder but make sure your left foot(right hander) is not planted across to the offside and you can get the bat thru straight-common for right handers to try to get at the ball around the front pad.

Gawd knows I've tried to cure this myself for...well ages.... :)

Use a very oval handle. You won't be able to grip bottom hand tightly at all..

@Jones129 , try holding the handle with thumb and index finger only as advised by AB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TGNYND9cVw

This is what I do (above) - a very loose grip with thumb and forefinger. When you need to add power from the right hand (eg a pull shot) it will be quite natural to tighten the right hand grip. I tell my under 11s and under 13s to do this. Hopefully, one day they will try it!

Good luck,

David

I find the opposite. Big oval encourages bottom hand biffing... though I think the thumb and forefinger advice is better than compensating with the bat. That said, I do feel sausage finger gloves help encourage *proper* technique as they are a bit stiffer and help support the fingers of the bottom hand better in a looser grip

Good tips guys will try a few things out in the winter nets. Ive tried the thumb and index finger way but old habits come in after a while.

Interesting..I find that with oval handle, I can't hold the bottom hand beyond the thumb and first finger while with a round handle, i am able to hold with all the fingers..So oval handle definitely helped me to hold with only two fingers on bottom hand...

Also tried many oval handles and having small hands find  that the bottom hand is forced off the bat handle.
Have seen it happen to others as well
Also find  that with the saugage finger gloves you get a looser bottom hand grip.
