Coaches corner

In this picture Souths Under 14 A Jack Pinchin opens his shoulders against Marist Brothers at McKenzie Park on Saturday. We ran this shot by one of the Far North Coasts leading cricket coaches and recently acclaimed life member of NSW Cricket, John McMahon.

Jack appears to have pulled away from the wicket when the ball has headed towards his legs. He should have moved with a good sized step towards the ball, have his left shoulder in line with the ball, transferred his weight to the front foot, his eyes level and over the ball, his front knee bent to help transfer his weight and have his left elbow high pointing to where the ball should go. His left hand should be in front of his right hand as he hits the ball.

Fortunately for Jack this shot fell short of the field.

Apart from needing to do some technical work Jack has a good eye and should continue to score plenty of runs.
