Phil Hughes explains technique behind cut shot
Aug 20, 2014
Australian batsman Phil Hughes explains the technique involved in playing the cut shot. It is one of Hughes’ favourite shot. Hughes says that the basics of a cut shot involves being sharp on your feet and transferring the weight on your backfoot.
Hughes is a predominantly off-side player. His stance is a bit square and prefers to take a middle-stump guard. These two techniques make it easy for him to free his arms on the off-side. Hughes says that cut shot is something he played right from when he was eight years of age.
Hughes was recently included in the Australian One-Day side at the back of some impressive performances. He became the first to score a double century for Australia in List A when he smashed the South Africa A bowlers. He also notched his career-best bowling performance recently when he scored a double ton against the same opposition.
