Cricket Skills 2 - Front Foot Batting

This is the second video in our series of Cricket Skills videos.

This one features the most important batting techniques on the 'front foot'.

These shots are played to balls that bounce / pitch close to the batter. A right handed player should move their left foot forwards before hitting the ball. A left handed player would move their right foot.

Watch the video below to see / hear Alfie explain a whole range of front foot shots.

Watch out over the next few weeks for skills videos on 'Back Foot Batting', Wicket Keeping and Fielding. We hope you learn something from these videos. Cricket is a very technical game so keep practising.
