The stance is the "ready" position when the batsman is about to face a delivery.
It is the base to play all your shots, so remember to be comfortable and relaxed.
Points to remember:
The feet should be approximately a foot length apart either side or on the popping crease
The weight of the batsman should be on the balls of their feet, with the knees slightly bent. This means they can transfer quickly to either their front or back foot depending on the length of the ball
The batsman should be side on when the bowler is about to deliver
Some batsmen prefer to open their stance to help them see the ball clearer
