    Short ball evasion in cricket


    How to play the perfect drive:

    "No batsman in the world likes to face short pitch, fast bowling, but the more you practice it the better you will play it.

    Place a table about three to four yards away from the batsman. The feeder then needs to stand a couple of yards behind the table and overarm the ball a good pace onto the table. Aiming the ball at the batsman’s head.

    The batsman then needs to make a decision, whether they want to duck, sway, defend or attack the ball. Remember, the key to this drill is keeping your eyes on the ball at all times. Or else."
