The Square Cut
A square cut is played to a ball which is short in length on the off side .
The back foot plays a vital role in the execution of the shot. To cut well, judgment of length, timing and flexibility of wrist are very important. Look at how well Ricky Ponting brings off the shot, sometimes with both his feet off the ground to pack greater power from the weight of his body.
