A pro would also be physically different from even very good club player - weights, daily practise, diet. So could potentially handle a heavier bat.

I've heard the same from a bat maker. The cricketers now are much stronger and fitter, happily have 2.10 +  lb bats and not necessarily ultra light bats. Seen more than a few interviews where bat pickup is preferred over dead weight.

PS I'm still impressed with the way the ping ball back to the keeper when fielding, whereas I'd get a sore shoulder with a weak throw :D

I would say that the amateur form the 90s used a far heavier bat than the overwhelming majority of pros do today.  These days the focus seems to be on bat speed

I don't know the bat weight used by Bairstow or Jason Roy. I guess it is 2-10 to 2-11. BUT, and this is a big but, both Roy and Bairstow are fitter, stronger, and bigger than an average clubbie. Proportionally, and by that I mean strength wise, Roy and Bairstow are also using lighter bats. Same for J Butler. Let me clarify, for their fitness and strength level, a 2-10/2-11 bat is light hence the whippy bat speed.

I look at Bairstow's shots and I wonder how he is generating all that power! His shot is a short arm slap and no follow thru as in NO full-blooded swing. Things that make you go 'hmmmm'.

Ok. Are you better or as good as Butler, Roy, and Bairstow? Got any videos discussing modern batting technique and power hitting? Info on technique?

So, you are an up and coming cricket phenom. Good for you.

Back to my original question: modern batting technique.

What's up with the off-stump guard?
What's the mindset behind the off stump guard and your area of operation? The way I see it, you play in the area one yard outside the popping crease and few inches outside off stump to a:) avoid lbw; b:) pick off balls in the channel.

How to develop that power hitting short arm jab so beautifully deployed by Bairstow?
How to find the right bat weight for your body size and strength level?
What's the full body workout routine to develop that kind of power displayed by Butler and co.?

That's not very helpful,  is it.

You are a big, strong dude but you can't talk about techniques that a clubbie can use to improve.
