I have never understood the need for a trigger movement. if you need to move as the ball is bowled then you have the wrong guard or are standing too far/not far enough in your crease.

It is to get your body moving in preparation for receiving the ball (either hitting it or leaving it). Some/many players find it difficult to stand still and then react quickly enough once the ball is bowled.

I'll send you my invoice for this coaching advice.

But the problem is you then have a moving ball and a moving head. The eyes can not track the ball, especially with fast bowling, well enough to ensure getting in line and timing of the shot.
