Myself Batting
« on: October 25, 2016, 10:18:39 AM »

Recently, as you all probably know, a bunch of us went to Eversley for a net
I decided to bring a camera along, and filmed the latter section of my first bat
Here is the evidence:

Any comments about my technique are appreciated, and I'm already expecting to be sledged about my use of a trigger movement!
I also apologize for the dodgy editing, i havent done one of these before

Ah mate
Lovely hand speed through the ball!!!!
It someone pulls that batting apart they need to get a life
You've got a good eye and you give it a good smack
Not a bad start for your cricket career

And the ball landing on your head is pure comic genius

Looks like you're hitting them well mate. You and I have very similar trigger movements in that our front foot moves so our toes move towards the bowler. Be careful not to move it too late as I found my foot gets stuck/I run out of time to get my front foot into the right position. You looked like you had the weight on the ball of your foot though which will help for you to move.

Quality hitting though mate, great tactical and comical use of the top edge!

Identities of the forumers bowling?

Also needs a warning attached, there is some serious bum cleavage at one point!

I came charging in to send down some floaty medium pace! I must have been bowling at nearly the same pace as a test match spinner... :-[

You asked for a comment and having looked at your vid, I'd picked up that you become open chested on your trigger movement causing your left shoulder to point to mid wicket and your right shoulder to come through. Your in a great position for the ball coming in, I'm guessing you may be caught on the covers or behind mostly. If you wanted to straighten up, lead with your left shoulder into the ball.

A simple drill is to put 3 balls down at drivable lengths for on, straight and off drives and practise leading with your head and shoulder into driving each  ball.

that's a really good drill that one. It also helps you work out any problems with your grip.

Not picking ok anyone... But compare your self to @WalkingWicket37 you have a good stance, balance, still head! You have a trigger movement before the bank is bowled. Appears to work! Like trott! Would advise working ok your lunges, so you can get forward a bit  more and play under your eyes.

Least you didn't vid your bowling  ;) have a list of things to correct it! Seam up that is!

2:37, you got found out  - slow short ball right into your body.

You trigger forward and put your weight on front. I wonder if you'd be able to rock back to a quick short ball aimed at your rib cage; with your current body alignment, I'd say you'd top edge such a delivery. To any delivery bowled outside the (off-stump) channel, your option is either play a square-drive or slice it to backward-point or third-man. And, that works only if you have a great hand-eye coordination.

I don't know how you bat in a real match situation. If this kind of trigger works for you, then you should continue using it. There are other options as well. :) The reason I say this is because I used to bat like that many moons ago. I have stigmatism in my left eye and did have problems seeing the balls side-on. With practice and better Rx for contacts, I am little better now and bat side-on. My two cents. :)
