    Ways to stop getting out "Bowled"

    Hey guys, 14 year old here, and this season has been alright for me, I'm an opener and this season I've gotten 59, 8, 2 and 1. Just one thing that's concerning me is that I've been bowled in all those innings, the 59 didn't concern me too much, as the coach told me to go for a hack for quick runs, but the other innings I've been bowled on low scores. Yes, before I get told "Bat next to pad" I do that, and all these wickets have been playing a defensive shot, bar the 59. So, any ideas?

    Cheers

    A whole boatload more information is needed here if we're going to be able to offer anything helpful. Bowled through the gate, or past the outside edge, for starters?

    Bowler type as well. Lefty or a righty/spin or fast etc.
    This was a serious post:

    Using your bat would be a start.

    Jagging back viciously to beat the outside edge? Interesting!
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Not a lot of info but I would wager that you are not getting fully forward.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    This, probably coupled with a strong bottom hand leaving the bat out of line with the ball, is the likely diagnosis.

    I am, nevertheless, intrigued as to how you can get bowled past the outside edge by one that comes back in.

    Isn't that exactly what happened to Cook today? Granted, it is rare.

    Haven't seen it yet; descriptions I've read have said "swung in and then seamed away".

    Either way, would be surprised to see bowling like that against Flinders Park U15s.

    EDIT: Now seen it, and fairly sure it cut away from Cook who was playing the line (middle/middle-and-leg) down which it was swinging, before it nipped away a fraction to take middle-and-off.

    Had no idea Rahul Dravid had a CW login.

    Were you playing forward or back?
    Where were your feet in the stance? [distance apart and alignment]
    What guard do you bat off?
    Were you stood still at point of ball release? [ie any trigger movement fully completed]
    Is your stance stood upright or crouched?
    Are you eyes level at all times?

    All of the above could be assessed much easier in a 3 second video clip.

    hey guys, sorry for the late reply

    Haha, maybe I am Dravid

    You know, i'm actually not quite sure if its gone past the outside edge or through the gate, it just happens in a flash really.

    Were you playing forward or back? Attempting to play forward, but as Goughy said, probs didn't get forward enough.

    Where were your feet in the stance? [distance apart and alignment] Good question this, as I might start a thread to do with this, at the time of getting bowled, I had a narrow stance, maybe a foot and a half apart, with feet straight to point.

    What guard do you bat off? Middle Stump

    Were you stood still at point of ball release? [ie any trigger movement fully completed] I take half a step forward at release, puts me in a position to drive and quickly go on the backfoot if needed

    Is your stance stood upright or crouched? Mostly upright....a little cramped due to back problems
    Are you eyes level at all times? Yep, been working on it for the last 2 years, having the eyes straight and level looking at the ball.

    cheers
