Surely you don't think professional left handed batsmen are the only lefties who can benefit from opening up their stance?

I've played against plenty of block or biff merchants who were left handed, one of who is routinely up the top of the league run scorers lists. He stands very open - nudges on the off side, blocks anything on off stump, anything straight or legside he hits out. Simple but effective.

Gary Palmer doesn't exactly exclude off-side play;  in my experience, his technique makes it easier to leave the risky off-side deliveries.

I have used his technique to score good amount of runs. I was always weak in the covers regions but can score elsewhere.

Even if his technique makes you predominantly on/leg-side batsmen, why is it so bad? Over the generations, batting technique has become off-side dominant. And, guess where fielding captains place majority of their fielders: the off-side.

Like I said, for me, his technique works well. He teaches how to score runs. I have better than ok against decent club bowling.

I think at the club cricket level, such an approach is perfectly fine. As long as you are scoring runs consistently, does it matter how stylishly you score them?

Exactly,
It's always good to be able to play all around the wicket, but mostly batters more one than other, nothing wrong with it, as long one knows his limitations and adjust accordingly.
It's also about what level you play and it's all about what works for you.

What's the resemblance between Graeme Smith and a 5th XI player!
If he's that good, put him in 1st team then! They'll benefit more than 5th, innit.

But as you've said earlier, know your limitations and there's nothing wrong with that. Some players are useful run scorers at low levels and would be exposed playing any higher, doesn't mean they aren't important to the club!

Weighing up going to see him. Its quite a considerable drive and I assume a decent amount of money. Would people recommend it?

I didn't say they're not important to a club, but no need to jump from GS to a cricket 5 team player, to prove own point!

Personal coaching is alway a good way to go forward, there's always room for improvement.

I think he was countering your claim that Smith was a poor example of a left handed, legside dominant batsman purely because he's an elite professional?

As has been said, it is not true that all successful left handers score the majority of their runs on the offside, as you claimed.

He's widely regarded as one of the best batting coaches in the country. I really don't see how you can go wrong! Let us know what it is like if you go!

Its a 3 hour trip each way for me and Ive been twice

Its definitely a different technique as he emphasises the straight drive as the basis for the technique

Makes off drive and on drive easy so gets you more balanced, cover drive does take getting used to afterwards but do able

Defiantly worth going as you have not got to stick with the whole technique but do as with anytime take what works for you and adapt it as I did

Im still open but I dont turn body for cover drive and use hands, I know in my batting if Im hitting straight well Im in a good place so gives me confidence to play other shots so his method worked well, plus he played with my hero Viv so was a good chat
