10,236 runs were thrashed by marcus Trescothick across the three formats for England – and demonstrated how he did it.
The 41-year-old, who motivated 14 hundreds from South Africa at The Oval in his 76 Tests using a best of 219, clarified how playing with the ball was key to his success in cricket. Trescothick declared he’ll retire from cricket in the conclusion of the 2019 domestic year on Thursday.
“I was somebody who was aggressive, I wished to score runs,” he explained. “I did not need to bat all day to find a hundred, I always wanted to bat daily to receive 170. I had been under my eyes, hit ball tried to strike it and see ball.
“I never went far at the ball with foot movement and normally when you’re not getting the contact you need, it is because you’re hitting the ball too premature ”
Trescothick, who clubbed 12 ODI hundreds, also spoke the secrets to enjoying with spin, and trigger motions, keeping your mind while batting.
“I could constantly sweep, that was always my go-to shot, but since I played against better spinners in global cricket I had to develop and be able to manipulate the ball. Because the pressure builds, you do not need to get stuck in one end.
“You can get on one knee and also practise little faucet. Additionally, if you happen over the surface of the ballyou can nearly splat it on the ground to select the bounce along with the twist from it.”
