^ He has excellent hand-eye coordination despite all the herky-jerky movements. His head is not still at all.

Are we watching the same video?
Despite the movement and getting into interesting position, Billings' head is level and watching the ball, and is still and over the ball at the point of impact.

We obviously are not...his head is not still...he is over the ball in few shots not every shot...I don't know about level either with all that bouncing around.

Rackets iirc.

Head looks still to me, unconventional shots but classic still-move to shot-still head. Soooo casual on the scoops, shows how easy that shot really is if you've got the balls to play it that confidently off professional pace.

That's exactly what I thought. It just goes to show it doesn't matter what position you get into, you just need to have a still head and watch the ball.

Cricket is actually a very simple game, we just like to overcomplicate things... :-[

I like the way even in the nets he was still preempting the quick single... makes sense really. If when you practice you don't build that reflex into your rhythm why would you then all of a sudden do it when out in the middle.

yes I know it's against schoolboys but watching Stokes hit the ball that clean is a fantastic sight for those of us that only middle a couple of shots a season
