    trigger movements

    hi, im a decent middle order batsman, usualy 5, 4 if im lucky. my coach said to me one training session, "louis, u av potential mate", i asked him how i oculd unlock this potential, as i had learnt the fundamentals by the book.
    he mentioned breifly about triggewr movements but he didnt giv an in detail decription of the most useful.
    i have trauled the internet, and the tv for triggers of batting superstars.

    i have found a few which may be useful
    the jonathon trott, back foot across to off stump, place front foot down slightly ahead of the back foot.

    the michael vaighan, front foot opens first with a small press forward and back foot back and across slightly to off stump

    the pieterson, the front foot presses down bofroe the ball is delivered, the same as ponting.

    which onewould be more usefull?

    any new ideas are welcome.

    I know this sounds vague, but it all comes down to personal preference, what comes naturally and what gets you into the right position to play the ball. I don't really have a trigger movement, but I try to get forward as much as possible and then rock back from there if needed.

    Just don't do a Katich.

    right, iv decided to adopt a back and across trigger

    back foot back and across, front foot pressed forward just before ball is delivered, it should work, because im always look to go on the front foot but if its short i can deal with it in an orthodox fashion.

    Why not? If he does a Katich then maybe he might average 45 in test cricket one day. Do a Katich lad!

    Personally Katichs trigger looks awful but it works 4 him so try anything until u try the right thing.

    Vaughans forward press is ideal against spin, especially on those dicey early season wickets, you dont want to be hanging back too much..

    Personally I've found that quite an excessive back and across movement forces me to get in position, kind of like a right handed Katich, but I only do that against quick bowling

    best trigger movement imo is to get into crane stance (like the one they show in karate kid) while the bowler is just about to release ok.

    Hmm, to an extent. The best players of spin stay as still as possible, with maybe the most slight of slight forward presses. Vaughan's large forward press often didn't allow him to get right back in his crease to play the spin, unlike someone like Dravid who ends up right on his stumps when playing off the back foot.

    Leave the moderating to the mods thanks. It's also worth noting you should be the last person lecturing others on forum ethics/behaviour.

    My first movement when batting is usually towards the pavilion.
