You have decent hands I will give you that and your what I call a hands player you don't really play with your body at all.

Agree with above points away swing or short pitched but you have lots of positives too.

Work on shoulder head alignment if you know what I mean. Head towards the ball as a pivot.

However if what your doing is working stick at what your doing.

There were some nicely struck shots there! Good of the bowlers to oblige and put it where you want it 9 times out of 10 :) I am joking of course as it your timing and co-ordination that makes it look very easy. I don't think I've seen a net video here where anyone has as much time as you.

I guess one small tweak which may help with balance and the shorter balls could be to use the rear foot more (possibly too much weight on the front foot pre delivery?) to give you the space and time by putting more weight on it which would end up with the rear foot pointing more square and less straight down the wicket. At the moment it looks like the rear foot drags straight back with the weight still too much on the front foot on the short balls, rather than use a solid step back with the rear foot and the front dragging/ following (if that makes sense). I guess the short version is that it looks like the front foot still does all the work to short balls and I think this is a least part of being cramped on the short straight delivery. A touch more weight on the rear foot might also help position the front foot better on straight and leg side drives where the bat is having you come around the pads quite a lot at the moment where the front foot is a but trapped by the weight on it. Just some random ramblings and I'd imagine the 3 ball driving drill will help with getting a feel for the front foot/ back foot balance too.

Can't fault your timing for being able to handle it as it is though :)

I think there is a lot to like,  good bat speed and some nice shots. Not sold on the trigger but if it works then great. Echo other comments that a few short balls might give you issues. My main concern would be you look late on some balls coming on and the bat comes down crooked. I imagine some good balls coming back at you could cause issues. Some closing off of the face hint at this. Just work on you backlift coming down straight,  but looking good overall.

So with the next Southern net being tomorrow, i finally got round to editing the footage from the last one.

https://youtu.be/gPYwLpv-6yo

As last time, any constructive feedback is useful  :D Reading back on the previous comments I read that people would be interested to see how i fared against some short bowling and some away swing - both of which can be seen in here!
Also probably worthy of note was this was the first time i picked up a bat since the previous video, so I didn't have much time to implement the previous advise, but I tried a bit.

There's a guy in that vid who seem a typical net bowler.

Everything is halfway down track. Except one that bowls you. He doesn't seem to learn as he goes back to banging it in short
Love them guys.


I enjoyed your batting though.

Would only say you set yourself too early and rely on your arms to generate bat speed.

Enjoyed that.

Most shots well timed, some good cuts.

Points to work on: You open up a lot in your set up, as the bowler enters his delivery stride you're almost front on. But I don't see it as too much of a problem because you've got good hands and very few balls are going leg side.

Overall, very good.

I guess anything straight or slightly on leg that are short or good length are the tough ones with the start position

Batted well and made me look stupid with your rampthingamabob :)

Was there any particular reason you really went after one particular bowler? ;) :)

From my perspective bowling at you, I thought anything you had room to get your hands through you're pretty comfortable, but if I can cramp you up I'm in business - hence mostly aiming in at your waist or top of off. Trigger is maybe a bit open and a bit forward but doesn't bother me tbh as it plays to your strengths well and you get back quickly enough for the cut. What I would possibly change is the backlift - it's very wide and away from your body, almost towards point, which is what makes it hard to get the bat into line for anything closer to you. I'd give it a go tightening/straightening it up which should make it a lot easier to play those balls. Hope that makes sense, otherwise just keep on putting it away when it's in your area!

Maybe because of your trigger movement which is opening up your toe before the ball is bowled, you are playing most shots front on rather than side on...i guess staying side on longer will help.

Even with the forward press a bit more side on seems like something to try. I would imagine that if you do that and try to get you elbows out of your body (coach buzz's rocking baby motion) then the bat will naturally come down straighter and might make the straighter balls easier to face.

I would say 2 things,

1. get in line with the ball  - you seem to be quiet a hands player which is fine because your hitting them well but just on the ones short on the stumps your going back and towards leg stump rather than back and in line with the ball and same thing with front foot as well. At the very least you want to covering your off stump to a ball that on or about off stump.

2. When your hitting lofted hit straight - this gives the full face of the bat which makes it a lot safer also generates the most power. The few that you did try to hit sort of squirted of onto the leg side or just over that old guy "no respect"
