    Open the face of the bat and runs down to the boundry? Doesn't sound like a cover drive

    Mine would have to be the cut shot forward of square. Last season I also developed a good hook and pull, two shots I had never used befor in my life.

    I'm an off-side bully... either a cover-drive or a cut, mainly because I 'use my feet well', if you choose to listen to my coach.

    I was always much stronger on the leg side. Leg glances, pulls and on drives. Pretty much useless on the off, so I wound up leaving everything outside off that wasn't drivable.
    It's cold on the outside they say
    But the cold leaves you clear while the heat leaves a haze

    Haven't played in months, but I favour the straight drive. I play almost everything full down the ground. I then find myself overbalancing at times to wide half volleys, unless I've been in for a while. Only recently have I mastered legside play (back when I actually played).
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    My signature shot is the pull.
    I am a dogged batsman and very 'unindian' in that sense - i am pretty competent against pace/seam but i am worse than practically every indian i've met when it comes to playing spin...maybe because i got no clue about reading a spinner from his hand and i play off the pitch....
    i dont think i have an offside/legside preference but there are some shots that i simply cannot play even if my cousin sis is bowling on double bounce : Cut, steer, leg glance, flick.

    I've only ever faced one quality spinner. He's a left-arm seamer by trade, but I'm trying to persuade him to switch to chinaman, because he's amazing on the odd occasion that he's tried it. He gets the ball to turn in Murali-esque fashion. The first time I faced him, it was on a concrete surface, so I prodded my pad out to a ball that pitch a good 1.5 feet outside my offstump with him bowling from over the wicket. The ball spun back and took legstump. This from someone who had bowled left-arm chinaman literally once before.

    I love to play the lofted drives, off or leg side. when the ball is short, the cut or the pull.

    On drive...I have a preference for the on side, and no real preference for spin or pace. Leg-spin sometimes causes me a few problems though.
