Batting like favurite player
« on: February 15, 2012, 12:11:03 AM »

What are problems/things wrong about battin like a favurite player.
I have a simmilar natural trigger move, if I adjusted it so it's the same as a pros would there be a problem.

You should never try and bat like someone else. It's nice to have a good technique, but don't try and copy someone else's style. Just work on getting a solid technique and feeling comfortable doing so.

disagree, its fine to model yourself on a top player, as long as you are not doing anything which you are uncomfortable with.

Which is fine, but if you are right handed and trying to bat like david Warner you can see how it might go wrong...

I love to model my batting on Chris Martin's, and I'd highly recommend you do too. My average is now sky high at 2.32.

Being ambidextrous, I would sometimes change hands and my stance to play like Chanderpaul. I can't even begin to tell you how many angry pacers would try to bowl me bouncers (this all being in the nets of course; I'm not quite crazy enough to try it in a match....... yet  ;))
