Whenever I watch cricket I hear the expression "that was well timed" or "great timing" frequently. And often excessively - it seems like any miss hit is put down to poor timing and any good shot is due to good timing.
My definition of well timed - is a shot that is hit at precisely the right moment. With front foot drives this should be when the ball is just past your heel of your front foot.
A miss hit where you have hit the ball with the outside half of your bat has nothing to do with timing IMHO.
And I would also not call a shot where you have used poor technique and not held your form and shape properly poor timing. That is just a poor shot.
How do you understand the term timing?
