    You should focus on keeping your back foot stable for balance and to prevent energy leaking


    Hard to get a handle on this double edged sword

    It looks alright but I have seen better cover drives.

    I give it 6 out of 10.

    Your upper body is getting straight a touch too early.

    Keep your back bent while going through the drive. Don't get into a stand straight posture that early.

    Plus, these are slow speed halwa half-volleys and you are using a lot of wrists. But if the ball pitches just a touch short, you will give a catch in the covers with this technique.

    Bring a balance between using your arms/shoulder muscles working with your wrists.

    If anything, I'd say its perfectly fine. By the looks of it, you predominantly play street or 'gully' cricket. In that form of cricket, technique does not matter. As long as you're able to manipulate the ball into gaps or hit big (depending on the format) you are fine.
