Cricket - Flash Game
Maybe this is a good moment to briefly recall these basics shots. Straight drive is executed when the ball is heading directly towards the stumps. It's one of the most common and strongest shots in cricket. Pull shot is typically played to a short pitched delivery pitching on or just outside of stumps. Can be played off the front foot or back foot. The square cut is the shot which is employed against balls wide off of the off-stump. It is usually played to a short length delivery outside off-stump. The square cut allows batsmen to free their arms and hit the ball with the cross bat. The principle of forward defensive is to block the ball rather than score run. A good forward defensive stroke is an important stroke and helps the batsman to build an innings.
