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

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.
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.
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 .
Great video mate, we better see more :P
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).
Balance is very important - must not fall over too much or you'll chip it in the air.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
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.
(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
