sir,i have some doubts about footwork.how can i step foot before the ball land or after the ball land ?

You should be in position before the ball pitches, wghich means you need to pick the line and length in the air as early as possible, then move quickly into position so you are balanced and starting your bat's downswing at the right moment.
