This shot is one of the finest sights you'll see in cricket.
It's an aggressive, cross-batted shot played off the back foot towards the leg-side off a short pitched delivery.
It's different to a hook shot because it's played on or around waist high and is easier to control.
Fast bowlers like to dish out the short stuff, so it's the best way of telling them who's in charge on the pitch.
Footwork and anticipation are very important.
You need to be in the correct position in an instant - otherwise you'll get hurt or needlessly give your wicket away.
As your backswing begins, the head, shoulders and back foot move back and across.
Your front leg is moved back and towards the leg side, forming the base for the shot with the head slightly forward.
The bat is brought down and across, making contact with the ball as early as possible in front of the body.
Hitting the ball downwards will help you avoid being caught out. Try and roll the wrists at the moment of impact.
Your weight is transferred on to the front leg, but try to maintain your balance throughout the follow through.
Keeping your head still throughout the shot will also help your balance and timing.
