  • Backfoot defence


    How to play the perfect backfoot defence:

    "To make big scores the backfoot defence is a necessity for any good batsman.

    Transfer your weight from your front foot on to your back foot to allow you to get deeper in the crease. Which ultimately will give you more time to play the shot. Even though you are back in the crease, ensure that the head stays forward into the shot.

    Don’t try to force the ball. Play with soft hands so the ball drops just in front of your feet."
