In this video, you will learn how to play a lofted drive.
The lofted drive is a front foot shot in which the bat is swung earlier in order to drive the ball up in the air between mid on and mid off.
It is best played to an over-pitched delivery when played from the crease.
The three key steps are: the position, the shot and the follow through.
Relax your body and assume a balanced stance.
Raise your bat with a high back swing to gain enough momentum to play the shot.
Taking a step towards the pitch of the ball, bend your front knee keeping your head behind the point of contact.
Strike the ball a foot or two in front, chipping it in the air and over the bowler.
Fully extend your arms in an arc towards the direction of the shot and release your back foot to find your balance.
Keep practicing the stroke to perfect your Lofted Drive.
Enjoy your game.
