How to follow the ball?

You have to aim the bowler’s hand, That hand is holding the ball. And you have to keep a close eye on the ball, When will the ball be released from his hands, And you have to be ready to play.

You have to take a step to play. And when to take that step?

When the bowler jumps the ball to release, Then you should not stand. You have to take a step to play the ball(Take the step at your own convenience). But you must step up a bit. This will cause your front foot to move toward the ball. 

How to play?

You have to keep an eye on where the ball is falling. Accordingly, you have to move your front foot towards the ball and play, And your hind legs will be in one place.


How to transfer body weight on the ball?

When you move your legs forward to play, First the heels of the feet will touch the ground, And then you have to play with the knee band.

     If you play without a knee band, your body weight will not be transferred to the ball.


I hope you have learned a lot, You must practice more at home. You can play well if you continue to practice.

    well as other musical instruments through The Manilow Music Project, an organization that provides musical instruments
    to school districts. Quaid even happily reported that he got an enthusiastic thumbs up from the ‘one
    and only Harry Shearer’ who was watching the dames,
    the dudes, and the Big Fun Marching Band. These have lead to
    many organizations introducing the time-tracking software that allows the company to record time on tasks.
