Hook

Sport: Cricket

A shot played at shoulder height by the batsman against any short delivery, or any ball that is on a line just outside the off-stump. Good footwork is essential for this shot. The back foot is normally well back, enabling the front foot to be moved to open the body further. This gives the batsman the chance to meet the ball with his arms at full stretch.
