Yes. Hes based not too far from me. I have spent around 20 hours with him over the last couple of years.

The technique he gets you playing is an interesting one. It certainly opens up the on-side a lot more, and you will end up nailing the ball straight down the ground. However, anything through the off side is a bit more difficult, mainly because theres such a huge movement required to get in to position so youre not just throwing your hands at the ball and hoping for the best.

One thing I really noticed (and suffered with badly last season) is that my left shoulder (Im left handed) was  opening up really early, and I totally lost the ability to play down the correct line. The net result being that I got bowled 5 matches in a row, each time playing inside the ball, when I usually get bowled no more than 1-2 times per season. Im going to go back to my old technique this coming season, and see what happens. I like the idea of being a bit more open, but what he teaches is an extreme version of it.

So, he's not teaching correct technique!

At the risk of going all Ravi Ashwin, who defines what a correct technique is?

What's the point coaching a let hander to open up his stance while left handers main scoring shots are on the off side!

Surely that depends on what is being bowled to said left hander.

I started being very open stanced myself, thinking the same, nailing on side but converted to much straighter, still a bit open, these days, with more comfort and confidence to be able to react to any kind of delivery, more importantly playing straight.
I'm right handed.

Knew you were going to give international players example, but they're superior sportsmen, we're not 🙂
Have you seen Asif Iqbal batting? 🙂

Indeed what exactly is your point. And what is the evidence to back it up?
