Back foot shots



Pull shot
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.
