Cricket Surgery Tip

Backfoot Defence

A basic bread and butter shot against pace bowlers.  The keys are decisive footwork, a straight bat and soft 
hands which allow you to adjust up or down depending on the bounce,  and to pull your hands and bat inside the line if you decide late to let the ball go.

The key is to stay on line, not follow the ball if it leaves you late.  One of those shots you must be able to play to keep your wicket intact.
