In this video, you will learn how to play the back foot punch.
The Back Foot Punch is an attacking shot played off the back foot by driving the ball forward between mid-off and extra cover.
It is generally played to a short pitched delivery falling on or outside off stump.
The three key steps are: the position, the shot and the follow through.
Relax your body and assume a balanced stance.
Taking a short step towards the off stump with your back foot, raise your bat with a high back swing and dip your head and front shoulder.
Transfer your weight onto the ball of the back foot and shift your front foot next to your back foot.
Swing the bat down using a high front elbow and punch the bat forward with your bottom hand, positioning your head above the ball.
Let the face of your bat continue in the direction of the shot.
Keep practicing the stroke to perfect your back foot punch.
Enjoy your game.
