Fascinating from @ABdeVilliers17 on his batting technique via @CricketYard – looks almost #Bradmanesque to me!

Very interesting to see AB de Villiers analysis of his own batting technique.

His “two step” backswing looks a little like the starting point for the “rotary batting” technique ascribed to Don Bradman – an initial low pick-up, followed by a more exaggerated lift of the bat towards the slips rather than straight back, with the bat then “looping” around to come down straight if the delivery demands to be met with a perpendicular bat.
