    Cover Drive!!!

    What is the best way to play a cover drive! I have been trying to get this shot off but have never played it well, I have recently been getting my front front towards the pitch of the ball but not so much my head. Any tips??

    Pick up length from the hand, let the ball come to you and then transfer your weight forward.

    No, I mean the exact opposite. Let the ball come to you, stride your front leg out, transfer your body weight forward and play it under your eyes presenting full face of the bat.

    If you are short or don't have fast legs, then get deeper in your crease to give yourself more time and shorten your front foot stride.

    Or may be just watch some moyo's youtube videos, man i really miss those damn cover drives, one could pay anything to watch those again live, when it comes to playing cover drive in the most stylish way then no one comes even near to moyo's elegance.

    Well I tried to play the shot today and had no success, I stand out of the crease and about a foot extra so im really forward ive also got slow legs so I think getting deep will really help me here, you may have cracked it.
