In this video, you will learn how to play a pull shot.
The pull shot is an attacking shot played off the back foot by hitting the ball from outside the bodyline and onto the on side, past midwicket.
The perfect opportunity to play the pull shot is a short pitched delivery reaching up between the chest and waist level of the batsman.
It is also a useful stroke to execute on a full toss.
The three key steps are: the position, the shot and the follow through.
Get into a side on stance with your weight distributed on the ball of either feet, raising your bat with a high back swing.
Apply weight on your front foot as you take a step towards off stump to get inside the line of the ball and pivot on the ball of your backfoot.
Let your bottom hand power the stroke as you swing the bat across to the leg side with fully extended arms.
Roll your wrists to keep the ball on the ground and bring the bat over your front shoulder.
Remember to steer clear of the ball if it is approaching towards the body line.
Keep practicing the stroke to perfect your pull shot.
Enjoy your game.
