Saving Runs in the field
Rating: 4
from 3 members ratings

This session encourages your fielding players to work extra hard, anticipating the shot, chasing down daisy cutters and sliding (where necessary), to save runs and build pressure on the batsman.

Catches win matches, the cricketing cliché goes, but there's a huge focus on fielding, especially with the increasing popularity of one day internationals and T20 cricket.

International teams recognise that saving runs is just as important as scoring them with the bat - the more runs you save you fewer you have to make and the more likely batsmen will make mistakes and they look to score

Build Pressure: Attack Ball

Make sure your players attack the ball and don't waste a second when fielding using this session to get your players running hard - fielding as individuals to begin with, then as their skills levels rise, working as a team to get the ball back to your keeper as quickly as possible.
