Chris Gayle?

The article gives him as an example of the opposite?

I was just guessing, as I'm sure  I saw somewhere (possibly on here?) something about his bat being down as the bowler delivered the ball.

Equally I could have totally imagined it, as the search function didn't help me find it...

Ross Taylor used to have his bat on the floor when the bowler delivered, but I believe he changed that about a year ago?

Nick Compton used to be pretty much stationary until the ball was half way down the pitch. I'm pretty sure his backlift was already at it's highest point in his stance, but it's been a while since I've seen him bat

Yep I posted a screenshot in another thread.

@GarrettJ most of those are halfway through playing a shot? Or neither up nor down.

When the ball's let go Bairstow will be in exactly the same position as those, half way. Think it's fair to  say the huge majority of modern batsman are in roughly that position at delivery.

I'm most definitely no barometer for correct technique, but that is about where I'm at at point of release, then dip my shoulder in line and move forward or back accordingly.  By dipping shoulder towards ball though, I'm effectively picking my bat up farther.

There's an interesting article on the wisdom or otherwise of 'bat up' here:

Bat down guys didn't require a trigger? It is an interesting idea.

He is inside the popping crease, with middle stump guard, and his bat is raised high. It looks like he is cutting down the time (down to half) of raising his bat and getting in line to hit the ball?
