    New batting grip in cricket


    How to grip the bat correctly:

    "The most important thing about the grip is that your hands feel comfortable on the bat.

    Line the V’s of your hands up to point down the middle of the outside edge of the bat. The V’s are the V in-between your thumb and your first finger.

    By having the V’s in this position it enables you to hit the ball down the ground. Where you have your hands on the handle is an individual preference, but ideally they are best placed in the middle of the handle."
