batting plans?

According to my former team-mates I had a batting plan which was "block 2 smash1". Personally, early in my career, I don't think I was ever in long enough for a plan.

I was talking with former NSW Sheffield Shield winner and Aus A opening bowler Don Nash the other day who was of the view batting plans are a great idea which invariably last about three balls once you're actually out on the park.
He's pretty right. And at lower levels, most batsmen get sorted out by a bowler who can land three balls in the same area and make one move.

Of course, Don's theory works better at higher levels of the game if you can bowl fast enough to make the batsman **** themselves.

If you want Bat on Off Stump. Dead Bat everything on the stumps. Blast anything outside Off through the Offside. Anything missing Leg Stump will be a Free Hit.
