Guides on being a batsman (part 2)
Hitting Your Ball
Be prepared for tapping your bat over the guard line. Doing so will notify the bowler that you are prepared to hit. Avoid tapping the ground overly hard. Plus, keep the bat as straight as you can so that you can maintain great form.
Next, step forward with the lead foot as well as bringing your bat back. Swing your bat back for it to come up to the back shoulder as well as being pointed directly in the air. Since you wind up, keep your bat as straight as you can. When stepping forward, turn the lead foot so that the toes face the bowler.
Follow with keeping an eye on the ball. Attempt to follow the ball when it bounces toward you. Once you are capable of following the pitch since it has left the hand of the bowler, you will have an idea of where to position your bat for a hit. When the ball reaches you, determine which type of hit you desire to make with your bat.
Then, swing your bat downward for hitting the ball when it bounces. You need to step forward with the lead leg as well as swinging your bat downward so that the lead elbow will point toward that bowler.
Next, swing your bat to the side when the pitch is short. When the ball bounces early, you advisably step back with the back foot for preparing for one high defensive swing.
Create contact with the ball when the bowler aims for the wickets. When the ball comes in fast and low, the high chances are that the bowler tries and hits a wicket as well as getting you out. Your primary goal is to contact the ball toward a defensive hit.
