    Batting help

    Hi guys,

    I have a very Ricky Pontingesque stance and backlift. I score most of my runs throught drives, leg glance and pull shot.

    I like to use a heavy bat (about 1.3kgs) with double grip. I believe that helps my shots gain some power since I'm only a touch/timing player and by no means a hitter.

    Now, the problem is that I cannot play square cut to the greatest of effects. Either I cannot connect it at all or it goes in the air for one/two bounce four but I struggle to keep it down.

    Is it because of the heavy bat I'm using or there is something in my technique that I need to change?

    Another question is what is the key to play a regular sweep shot? I seem to miss it all the time and the ball either misses my off stump or goes over it most times. Some times I have been bowled that way too.

    Sorry for not providing the footage.

    heavy bat defo makes cut shots harder. Could be technical though, hard to tell without seeing it
