Cocking your wrist
« on: June 16, 2008, 06:27:38 PM »

When you go into your backlift do you cock your wrist or do you just lift your bat normally. I just lift it normally and didn't even tink about this untill i saw it on crickety am i just wondered is this thew correct way to go into your backlift.

If you cock your wrist it helps the top hand domainate, therefore its easier to play straight.

I may seem very stupid here but what do you mean by cocking your wrists?

stiffening the wrist so you can keep a straighter bat reducing the turn of the bat when contact between the fast moving ball.
