Batting basics

Hitting front foot shot

  • Not each and every shot is worth playing for score. A forward defensive shot always scoring and also safe for the batsman. When a ball is played, a forward defensive shot is applied to be away from being called out. Having a hard defense is a critical part of being a good batsman. Move backward and forward to contact the ball as it passes below the eyes. Keep the bat in angular position so that the face of the bat is in the direction of the ground. Play straight drive shot, sweep shot, a back-foot defense shot, player cut shot, back foot drive, play hook or pull shot depending on the direction of the shot.
