Cricket
Description

Set up in groups as shown: one batsman, one wicket keeper, one feeder and one or two fielders.

Mark out the V area with chalk or cones, approximately 4-5 metres wide.

The batsmen has to try and hit the ball between the cones to score runs, if they do they get one run, if not, they lose two runs.

Coaching Points

For more talented players move the marker on the off side further in, to make the V narrower.

This practice should ideally be completed in the nets.
