KEEP YOUR OPTIONS OPEN
Try not to commit too early to a shot.
PICK THE BALL EARLY
Judging the line and length of the ball early, reading it from the bowler's hand, gives you time to play the ball.
PLAY THE BALL LATE
Let the ball come to you and play it under your eyes.
UNDERSTAND YOUR GAME
No one is a clone of anyone else so although everyone does things a little different, knowing what works for you is important.
