How to Play Cricket : How to Bat a Cover Drive in Cricket


Hi this is Ash on behalf of Expert Village.
Today we talk about cricket. In this clip, I’m going to tell you how to play a cover
drive. A cover drive is a very handy tool for the batsman. Especially, for the delivery
which is on the off side. So it’s not common to stand slightly on the off side. And to
play this delivery, the batsman needs to come in line of the ball. Now let me show you then
again the shot happens. So the ball which is coming in the off. The batsman extends
his foot in line to the ball, gets his bat, in line again and hits it on the color. Now
this is the direction of the color when the ball is pushed from here. Let’s see this in
real time. Good shot.

  1. I think you just mean Harbajan

  2. This is awful. If you really want to learn how to play the cover drive, watch Michael Vaughan's coaching videos on the Natwest Cricket site. Far, far better.

  12. @noongar1234 yea because he is indian mother fuckr…. they drink piss to get fit hahahaha

  13. thanks for straight drive

  14. dont let random retards teach you how to play cricket. WATCH the best players and learn from them. Cricket cannot be taught, you have to PLAY to learn.

  15. @jake11evans you mean softball, you retards have gloves coz it hurts your hands. AWWW :'-(

  16. head, foot hands should all be in a line. fundamental is your head should be over the ball for balance and control.

  17. "GOOD SHOT!" – as apposed to "HEAD SHOT!"

  18. @cricketwizz48 it's not very helpful if you don't do it properly – you just end up with kids getting a cover drive and off-drive confused. Rubbish.

  19. that is not a cover drive

  20. lmfaooooo !!!!!

  21. [email protected] a cover drive and off drive are the same thing!!! Maybe you should get good at the game before criticising expects.
    Douche

  22. why he is stretching his back foot out while playing the cover drive?
    wth

  23. this is why pakistan are so awesome at cricket 😉

  24. only five things wrong with the shot: it was a ball better suited to an off drive, the head isn't over the ball, the arms are inside-out to the batsman who isn't balanced and he has no equipment

  25. this guy is soo stupid, the head should always go first not the front leg, because if your head follows the ball the front leg will follow straight afterwards. as you see when he is hitting the ball, he is falling off balance which is my point proven.

  26. I dont see any problem with the shot he played.

  27. @noongar1234 Crappy pitch and miss-timing

  28. Well one thing I notice for any beginner who learns to play cricket It will have not much effect as, He has to first learn stance, balence,etc and has to play ball bowled Over the wiket after then he can be made to learn to play round the wicket. :-

  29. 0:03 "Today we talk about cricket" xDDDDDD

  30. I used this and hit a six….. ☺
