    Reverse Sweep

    Is the reverse sweep all about muscle in your opposite arm getting the swing and power thorugh the bat to really get the ball far?

    I don't see the point playing it its a very risky shot but I think its just timing and power but its a huge gamble my coach detests that shot nomatter if you hit a 4 or 6.

    No it is good for Twenty20 matches because the fielders aren't expecting it so they are not ready for it.

    Not about muscle and power. Try and have your head in line with the ball and still, use the pace of the ball at first and paddle it. As you get better, try hitting it harder.
