Front foot shots



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.
