Too much bottom hand and loose grip
Hi there, I play local league Cricket in Saudi Arabia. i'm an opening batsmen. unfortunately, I have the habit of holding the bottom hand too tight on the bat grip. i've tried to strengthen my left forearm as i m a right-hander in order to strengthen the left arm I used a bat with hanging weight. recently I found myself to have improved strength in my left arm quite significantly. I can even do 150 reps of a cover Drive drill in 5 turns with a heavy bat. however when I'm in a match psychologically I tend to hold the grip of my bat tighter with my right hand while the grip of my left hand gets loosened as I play the shot. could you please suggest a way to overcome this problem? I'd be really grateful.
