Marcus Trescothick thrashed 10,236 runs for England over the 3 formats – and shown the way he did it in a Sky Cricket Masterclass.
Even the 41-year-old, who powered 14 hundreds against South Africa at The Oval in his 76 Tests with a top of 219, explained how playing with the ball was key to his success in cricket. Trescothick declared he will retire from cricket on Thursday in the 2019 national season’s end.
“I was someone who had been aggressive, I wished to score runs,” he said. “I didn’t wish to bat daily to find a hundred, I always wished to bat daily to get 170. I was under my eyes, hit ball and tried to strike it late and watch ball.
“I went far in the ball with foot movement and generally when you are not getting the contact you want, it’s because you are hitting the ball too premature ”
Trescothick, who clubbed 12 ODI countless, also spoke trigger movements, keeping your mind while batting, as well as the keys to enjoying with spin.
“I could always sweep, which was my go-to shooter, but as I played better spinners in international cricket I had to develop and be able to control the ball. You don’t need to get stuck in one end because the pressure builds.
“You are able to get on one knee and then also shred small faucet. Moreover, if you happen over the cover of the ball, you can nearly splat it to the floor to take the bounce and also the twist from it.”
