Visualisation + Shadow Batting

Its the beginning of the week so why not take this opportunity to grab your cricket bat and practice "shadow batting" at home. Visualisation is a massively important part of batting and something that everybody does, even Steve Smith!

This video below shows a clip of Steve Smith in his full whites shadow batting the night before a test match!

The beauty of shadow batting is you can practice anywhere, at home, in the garden, in front of a mirror or with someone else watching.

If you want to take your shadow batting to the next level try doing it with your gloves on too and imagine you're batting in a game next season!
