Great stuff. Is there any reason not to use trigger movements against says mediums/fast-mediums? Would prefer to just concentrate on having one batting method against pace, and another against spin...

Stay tuned for the next video for the answer to that.

Great matter shown and dicussed here... But I personally have trigger movement of front and across by which i mean i go go forward with my front fot and the just across with ack foot very much like Sachin Tendulkar used to in his 20's and early 30's. So is there anything wrong with it because I dont see Sachin do it now but is that cauz of is age. Also according to me its more to do with your eyes and hands than any trigger movements but obviously you have to move you feet to th ball but it comes after eyes and hands. I might be wrong here but I have noticed players nowadays trust their eyes and hands more than any trigger movements. So please clear my queris Gary and David....
Many thanks!!!

This trigger is crap...its way too exagerated...against "90mph" bowling this guy would be pooing it...alastair cooks trigger is the one to look at..not pretty but effective
