Playing ball too soon
« on: June 22, 2019, 06:53:38 PM »

Right guys I noticed that last match but thought might be one off but it happened again today. Below is the problem I think I got.

I am playing ball too soon ending mistiming and going straight in air rather than hitting it sweetly for boundary. I feel I am too much into the moment and play my shot straight away without letting ball reach me.
My body and mind processing too quick,my feet are moving fine but my hand speed is faster I feel. Maybe I am trying to hit too hard or something I don't know.
Using heavy bat is one solution but I am not gonna buy another bat due to money and tennis elbow.

Need another solution to fix this problem.

Practice, probably a confidence thing.

What should I practice? In nets I am fine.  I wasn't short of confidence today. So far this season I got myself out by mistimed   shots.

If you train on synthetic but play on turf could be an issue because of pace of wicket variance, otherwise could be an over eagerness thing of not being patient waiting for the ball.

Try to relax more, it feels that you are too hyped up. Therefore, just going after the ball as soon as it is released.

Yes we train on astro and that could be difference as ball comes fast on astro so maybe my hand speed adjusted to pace at astro. Yes I feel I am bit impatient aswell. But what could I do to fix this. I can calm myself that's not a issue. How could I adjust my hand speed.

There could be another reason a feel. Everytime I batted this season either wickets keep falling on other end or runs coming too slow or none at all.
So I try hard to score to release some pressure resulting in mistiming.
Should I solely concentrate on my game? Forget about score board,other batsman, team runs etc.

Your handspeed isn't the issue. No one has ever been too early on the ball because their hands are too quick. You're either moving too early, or you are not creating hand and hip separation by pushing your hands back to imitate the downswing. Post a video of you batting, then people can judge the issue. I don't feel like the teams issues have anything to do with you mistiming the ball.

Also, if in your set up you have the bat aloft like bairstow and root, it becomes very hard to time the ball, it is easier to have a neutral back lift, and then pick the bat up and push your hands back to Initiate the downswing. There was a good article about it in the guardian

Batting is all about instinctive and timing any player who pre- determines there stroke is asking for trouble.                               Don't go chasing the ball pick your bat and  like all great players do  play the ball late  right under your eyes.
A great drill for timing is throw downs get somone to start with underarm followed by overarm  hit the ball first of the front foot and then the back foot hitting the ball along the ground.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Understand focus   and concentrate on  your  role in the team.
As for the other stuff just ignore it.

This is one of my problems also, my backlight is very high, I am going to practice the Australian style.

Thanks for sharing.

Where are you based? If it's down south I would consider one of the one on one sessions at serious cricket in Basingtoke. I've had one so far and have been really pleased with the results having not been coached for some time. https://seriouscricket.co.uk/coaching/1-2-1/2019-07

No worries, I would say the Australian and English styles both have flaws, I personally am playing my best cricket with my bat half way in between, just straight back over off stump and then picking it up and hitting straight through the ball, unless you are very crouched or short I wouldn't advocated tapping as the bowler releases
