Playing the front foot leg glance

The front foot glance is more a deflection rather than a stroke because it relies on pace already on the ball.

The placement comes from a flick of the wrists at the moment of impact, so the bat face is angled rather than straight.

Make sure your head is over the ball, with your weight on your front foot.

This will keep the ball on the ground, rather than flying dangerously in the air.

STEP ONE


Lean towards the line of the ball with head and front shoulder, placing the weight on the bent front leg.

STEP TWO


Bring the bat through on as straight a path as possible, turning the bat face slightly towards the leg side and making contact with the ball in front of the front pad.

STEP THREE


Control the shot with the top hand, glancing the ball away.
