Dear David .

i have 13yr old son, he started playing cricket 3 yrs back this is his 4 th year in progress.
recently he has started to play against the bowling machine . he is purely a front foot player with nice check drives at speed around 70miles, around 75 miles he is not able to drive but defend ball in front foot.
his problem is back foot strokes to be specific cut and pull as he is able to play defense and flick from the hip to the short ball
even if the ball is slow and short he is not able to play the pull or cut, there is big difference to his front foot and back foot play

i have 3 questions to you.

1) what is the problem do you attribute to
2) how can this be rectified
3) is he lacking hand eye coordination

i will be highly grateful if you can help me on this.
