Back foot shots



This is one of the best looking cricket shots you can play.

It enables you to score runs in the area between mid-off and cover to a delivery just short of a length.

As with all other back foot shots, you'll need good balance and quick feet movement.

But unlike the hook or square cut, the back foot drive relies more on timing and placement rather than power.
