Batting - Setup

Crucial for good batting is a good 'set up' (how you stand at the moment the bowler releases the ball). Set ups differ between batters to some extent, but there are some core (non-negotiable) points. These include:


- Keeping eyes level and head still

- Correct grip and keeping hand close together on the bat handle

- Being well-balanced and comfortable

- Having correct bat pick up ('backlift')
