Hello friends, today I taught you more about crack the field, in cricket when we bat, lots of different situation comes and if we want to be success we should play in all situation and face all attacks, but as I said first attacks is best policy to win, and to attack we must have strength of muscle and mind.
Here I try to teach you how to apply your mind and get success in batting. Batting is not just physical skill, but to get more and more runs you should apply your mind skill, and this skill depends on your mind and mental training. So always be cool and use your mind for hunger for runs.
How to crack the field situation 1
In my first article I explained all basic things about crack the field, here we go ahead, and achieve some more.
When you comes for open the innings, or one down or second down and the ball is new and if the wicket is fast and bouncy, and at that time caption arrange the field as two slips, gully, point, cover point, short mid-on, short mid of, means all players stand just as if you touch the ball, and the ball slightly in air, your game finish. The wicket is fast and bouncy so all balls comes with good height, all balls falls on middle stumps or on off stumps, means off side attack, now how play and make score. At that times you cannot play square cut or regular pull, because at this situation the balling attracts is on off side. The bowler attacks with good lengths or bounce, and swings or cutter, in, out, any things. Now things what is options for you?
First of all, with cool mind think the situation, for playing, your problem is off side fielding and off side bowling attacks. Now to crack this field and caption mind, you should use mind and mussel power, but how?
Here is plan, every bowler has six balls, and he wants variation. So read the bowler mind and understand about his variation. If the ball comes in wicket and good length then simply play defence. But if ball’s line is out and not good length then hits it on leg side, but how?
First if you are fine with cross bat, then hits with cross bat just as sword swinging. Hit the ball in leg side in area between deep square leg to deep mid-on.
Second if you are not enough fine with cross bat then as bowler release ball, change your stance means come in open stance, now you may easily play off side ball in leg side, but here no shot hitting, only play lightly in area between square leg to mid-on, and takes one or two runs and change score board rotate and strike also.
Here you should change your batting grip and bat face to heat ball, because to chance the direction of ball when the ball comes with significant pace and movement is not easy, so you should be careful about it. You should do all these with great confidence, because confidence does all work easy. And one most important thing is you should do lots of practice of this kind of playing in net, always remember practice makes perfect.
Do something unusual, means unusual playing, such as if you mostly play with technical shots, and the opposition caption knows this thing very well, then start playing with non-technical shots. If your natural shots are low-power, classical shot then use non-technical power hitting shot. Or vice –versa
When you do this, the opponent caption not understands what happened, because what he believes for you is not done and the situation arise is not under stable for he. And when he understand your plan the time collapsed, and he confused to do something. And during this time you should attack on his mind and his game.

Now let’s discuss another situation.
When you comes for open the innings, or one down or second down and the ball is new and if the wicket is fast and bouncy, and at that time caption arrange the field as leg slips, square leg, mid-wicket, up fine leg, short mid-on, mid-on, means all players stand just as if you touch the ball, and the ball slightly in air, your game finish. The wicket is fast and bouncy so all balls comes with good height, all balls falls on middle stumps or on leg stumps, means leg side attack, now how play and make score. At that times you cannot play regular leg side technical shots or regular pull, because at this situation the balling attracts is on leg side. The bowler attacks with good lengths or bounce, and swings or cutter, in, out, any things. Now things what is options for you?
Think and write me……….
And I will discuss this situation next time and also I will discuss more situations, in which I will explain what should do in this situation?
Overall as the thought process of bowler and as per feeding the run scoring strategy changes
Time for framework!
