    Will not go into more detail than to say Pretoria. If you do recognise the place please dont post it here as it is unfair to them.

    Really interesting video that, and I don't even play cricket on a regular basis!

Afterall this is a good place to start with some basics.

    Yeah, Id volunteered to do this for an individual and decided to share it. Never say never but the fact that coaching is what I do on a day to day basis means I doubt this will be a regular thing.

    Good stuff. I need the leg glance much more than the cut shot. Please.

    EDIT: I understand that you probably don't want to do another one.
    Can you just offer some written advice on how to play balls coming at my leg (at my shins, knees, thighs (real problem there), hips, etc)?

    You're an Indian and can't play stuff off your pads? Goughy's the man though.

    I try to be tough and I play the hook shot like every other ball....I actually made an ass out of myself by playing it on a yorker.

    Haven't you ever gotten injured missing one of those shots?

    Not bad. One of my pet dislikes is people who talk about "rolling the wrists" with the cut shot. As long as you take a full stroke of the blade, you'll roll your wrists naturally.

    I tend to find that as long as my base is strong and I stand up tall, it all works pretty well for me. Although the cut is pretty much my main scoring shot - I need width to score.

    Yes . My first practice I almost got knocked out actually. I don't let it dishearten me though. I'll become an accomplished player of the hook yet.

    Backfoot play for teh win. I try to remove all front foot play from my game purely because I know I'll never be a great batsman anyway, so might as well have fun .

    Thanks for this. I'd love to see more vids like it. Can you do one on leg side shots (leg glance, or power drive through midwicket).

    Sometimes people try to play a leg-glance too fine and thus close the face too much, either missing it or not hitting it properly. If the ball is angled into the pads, I've found that I can generally play through the line a little more, like to widish mid on, and the angle will take it finer.

    Balance is very important - must not fall over too much or you'll chip it in the air.

    Following on from above, the easiest way to know that your balance is wrong is if your back leg comes through and ends up outside off stump after you play the stroker. It can be OK if it comes through, but it should be down the line of the stumps if it does.

    cheers Goughy

    (yes i'm that member, from the 5 times ive gotten out this year, 3 times it was mistiming and screwing up the cutshot by playing it into covers hands with a nice gentle lob!)

    awesome Goughy, really helpful
