In cricket when people ask me what is your favorite shot, a lot of shots come into my mind there is the Square cut, there is the hook shot, there is leg glance and now-a-days players are inventing their own shots with this new era of T20 cricket coming up.
But for me there is only one shot, the CLASSIC COVER DRIVE ! You can not explain the feeling in words when it comes to this shot. The enjoyment you get at that one moment when everything is perfect !
From everything I mean : The foot to the pitch of the ball, the follow through after the shot is played, the balance of your body, your head and eyes inclined to the line of the bat, The spot at which the ball is hit on the bat and finally the timing !!
If all of these aspects come into place at one moment, you get to see the perfect cover drive.
If you ask me I could suggest you just one man who plays it perfectly. According to me it is non other than the great Sachin Tendulkar !
They say when u see Sachin bat, when he is in his prime, he looks like the Nataraj : the form of lord Shiva when he dances ! Everything is perfect, the posture, the balance, the stance !
Well that itself is self explanatory I guess !
