    If by signature shot, you mean the only shot you can play, than the block. Other than the block, back-foot cuts I guess.

    My thoughts as well.

    I would've thought it'd be your defens.

    I'd say the straight drive or the cut, I usually time those pretty well, but it goes straight to the fielder too much for my liking.

    Over mid-on for 4.

    Although I played the best leg glance of my life earlier this season - only got 3 for it though, bloody long grass.

    I'm a compulsive hooker and puller though - only because I can never get into line quick enough to defend! I played a front-foot pull to a short slower ball earlier this season - missed completely of course, but it looked OK........

    Leg Glance is my signature shot, although my other shots can seem to be a little woeful.

    Actually, something other than the leaving a yorker shot, my defensive technique is supurb. Almost never get out with that.

    Although, I usually do about four of them and hang my bat outside the off stump and go for bugger all, yes, I average a massive 2 in my career.

    Up on one leg pull behind or in front of square, cut past point, straight drive (When I have the confidence to play it it's my best shot).

    Cover drive.. Would be lovely to play on some pitches that bounce enough for me to hook and pull..

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    straight drive, or the sweep. Playing in nets & sometimes for Lanchashire CC you got to be good at these shots sice its a slowish pitch that spins a bit.

    Scratch the "over mid-on for 4" bit - I just remembered I got compared to Jacques Kallis earlier this season by my coach, after he saw me play a devastating square cut for 4, so that's probably my best shot. I hit one in the nets that would have gone for six over extra cover - best shot I've ever played, and it was in the bloody nets.

    I remember I got compared to Tom Graveny (who?) in the nets because I looked so elegant..

    Furious, I smashed the next two balls into the balcony at the top of the sports hall.. First one smashed a door, the second one opened it
