How to play reverse sweep in cricket?

A reverse sweep is a cross-batted sweep shot played in the opposite direction to the standard sweep, thus instead of sweeping the ball to the leg side, it is swept to the off side, towards backward point or third man. The advantage of a reverse sweep is that it effectively reverses the fielding positions and thus is very difficult to set a field to.


Steps
1. The main aim should be to hit the ball in the gully area once a batsman decides to swing the bat across the leg-side towards off-side.
2. Ensure that the face of the bat faces the off-side when the cricket bat makes contact with the ball.
3. Make sure that the timing and co-ordination of your hand movements are in sync.
