How to Play Cricket : How to Bat a Sweep Shot in Cricket


Hi this is Ash on behalf of Expert Village.
In this clip I’m going to tell you how to play Sweep Shot. A Sweep Shot is typically
played to the leg spinners. This is a shot which is played on the leg spinners. This
is a shot which is played on the leg side. Now as the name suggests sweep. It is basically
like sweeping the ball on the leg side. Let’s see how this shot is played. In this shot
the batsman stretches towards the ball and gets his bat to sweep the ball to the leg.
You can see how much the batsman is stretching. It comes down, bends down gets the bat in
line with the ball so the leg, the foot of the batsman is facing the ball. And then the
bat comes down and hits the ball towards the leg side. Let’s see this shot in real time.
Once you hit this ball ensure that the bat is facing down. Otherwise the you may just
end up lofting the ball. Good Sweep!

  1. right, firstly. Ignore the indian voice in the background. You mainly want to plant your front foot (righthander's left foot) to outside the line of the ball, giving you more angle behind your leg stump. Then raise your bat high so that it comes down in an arch. (In this video he has a flat contact so he risks the chance of being caught.) You want to maintain a steady head and look at the contact of the ball after playing the shot – dont look at square leg after hitting it. (ECB LEVEL 2 COACH)
