Marcus Trescothick thrashed 10,236 runs for England over the three formats – and demonstrated just how he did it.
Even the 41-year-old, who motivated 14 hundreds against South Africa at The Oval, clarified how playing the ball late was crucial to his success in cricket. Trescothick announced he'll retire from cricket on Thursday in the end of the 2019 domestic year.
"I was somebody who was aggressive, I wanted to score runs," he explained. "I didn't wish to bat daily to get a hundred, I wished to bat daily to receive 170. I was see ball, hit ball and tried to hit on it late and beneath my eyes.
"I went to far at the ball with foot motion and generally whenever you're not getting the contact you need, it's because you are hitting the ball too early"
Trescothick, who clubbed 12 ODI countless, also spoke the secrets to enjoying spin, and trigger moves, keeping your mind while batting.
"I could constantly sweep, that was my go-to shot, but since I played against better spinners in international cricket I had to develop and be able to manipulate the ball. You do not want to get stuck at one end as the pressure builds.
"You can get on one knee and then practise little faucet. Also, if you come over the cover of the ballyou can almost splat it on the ground to choose the bounce along with the twist from it"
