Batting - The Drive

The Drive is an attacking front foot shot played to a ball which pitches quite full.




- Remain well-balanced as you execute the shot for power and control

- Ensure head is forward towards the ball and is over the line of it as you play the shot

- Bat follows through to point towards the target (where the ball goes)
