This worked in nets, the only trouble was I didn't think I am generating enough power through the swing.

Need to work on timing.

Keep in mind previously even my bad shots were compensated by power and would end up clearing the ropes.

You really dont need power through the ball if you time it and theres any speed on the ball. Granted if someone is bowling you hand grenades in sunday league please follow the famous technique of clear the front dog and mow.

This is easy to put right unless I intend to rarely hit the ball in the air  keep your shape head still eyes level when playing your shot  get your head over the ball and DONT lift your head until you are through the shot as this ensures the ball stays on the ground

Had a t20 Tuesday night against a weaker side. We lent them our overseas and another lad as they were short. We got 183, I got 7 off 4, hitting a full toss from a left arm grenadier out the ground before our Aussie bowled me last ball of the innings. They got about 115 off their 20, I got 1/5 from two deliberately bowling well below match pace and giving it loads of air.

The left armer I hit for six was apparently 76, hence why he was pretty slow, and is aiming for his 4000th career wicket in the next couple of weeks! A remarkable effort in my opinion.

Unfortunately my back had flared up so I've dropped to the 2s as a batsman for Saturday, seeing my doctor on Wednesday but suspicion is my season my be over with a stress fracture. Hopefully get scans soon, if it is bad news then a charity game next Sunday will be my last game of the season and I'll probably become 2s scorer for the season to stay involved with the club.

that's a late 90s model. it was lower middle of their range - sort of comparable to a Newbery Series 1, i.e. dense but good-looking willow.

Excellent point about head ...mine is usually rocking back and by the time the shot is complete, I am usually looking up.

Yeah that’d do it!
