The sweep has become the favoured shot against spinners, especially by England's batsmen.
It is a cross-batted shot played to a delivery on or around leg stump behind square on the leg side.
There's an element of risk when you play the shot, so read on to make sure you don't give your wicket away needlessly.
Lead towards the line of the ball with head and front shoulder.
Place the front pad into the line of the ball and then bending the front leg and collapsing the back leg.
With your head over the front knee, bring the bat down and across from a high backswing.
Strike the ball in front of the pad with the arms outstretched and both shoulders facing directly down the pitch.
Roll the wrists on contact to keep the ball down.
Follow through so that the bat finishes in a high position with the hands close to the front shoulder.
