    Perfect? Nah, but decent. You play them ok

    You lean back on the square cut and are off balance. Start in a good position but finish in a bad one as you lose control of the shot.

    The weight transfer and movement to the pitch is poor on the off drive. However, the left elbow and face of the bat is beautiful. It looks very pretty.

    AWTA - the off drive could be better - if this batsman was playing on a grass pitch with a seaming wicket he would be in trouble. He plays the shot with his feet anchored to the crease.

    Please post better clips in the future.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Opened the two videos expecting a vintage Brian Lara square cut and Michael Hussey on the drive.

    Disappointed now. I would like my five seconds back please.

    This. Was probably the poster's shots, people wouldn't be as harsh if you actually said they were yours. If they we're your's, no one will really care.

    - You are too tense in your stance, loosening up a bit will help your balance.

    - The back foot off drive is hit a little bit across the line, try to hit more through the ball. As Hurricane said if the ball seams or bounces a bit, or even if it was bowled by a faster bowler, you would be in big trouble.

    - You seem to be a predominantly back foot player, I wanna see how you play those full balls on off and middle stump.

    - Square Cut was good, would have loved to see your follow through though.
