I often see people struggle witht h emoving ball because they play th efirst line, not the second - they go at the ball too hard, too soon.
Maybe, if u r getting lb plonks a lot it may be your balance. If your head isn't straight as the bowler runs in you may find yourself falling over a bit which leaves your susceptible to getting caught on the crease and hit on the pads.
Don't know if that's th eproblem, but if it is, straighten up your head and (if u r right handed) touch your chin on your left shoulder as you face up to ensure that both eyes are square to the bowler.
