Stronger forearms give more power in your shots and the ability to go on and on.
But a few wrist curls at the end of the workout like a bodybuilder doesn't cut it. For batsmen who want to score runs, isometric grip training – rather than growing your forearms - holds more importance. This is because flexing and extending your wrist with added resistance will do precious little for increasing cricket-specific grip strength.
So, why do you need a stronger grip to bat?
It starts a virtuous circle.
