We've all had that one coach who drops that pearl of wisdom and you carry it round with you wherever you go!

just bat - "your technique is OK, your good enough, you have great hands, your issues are all in the head so just bat"

have that written on top of my bat handles as a reminder, say it to myself on the way to the middle and try to remember it

Move your head/eyes to the ball.

Not had any coaching as such to speak of myself but it would be practice watching the ball right onto the bat just as you would practice anything else in nets or training.

Ponting  brought this to County cricket when he had a short stint over here and if thats something he believed in its good enough for me  :)

As a batter you get to make one mistake but as a bowler you get chance after chance, with this is mind value your wicket and enjoy your good shots. Bit of advise I was given a few years ago seemed to make sense to me

Kevin Pietersen: "Kiss the ball".

Best bit of advice as it makes you move your head to the ball.

 Throw in "dipping the shoulder" and "keep your head still" and you've got a great foundation for your batting.

"Don't poke your bat at the ball that's way outside the off stump, leave it or attempt to hit it hard"
