Cricket: Back foot defence

"Sportplan is providing me with all of the new dimensions of coaching...
Kanishka

DESCRIPTION

3-5 people stand in each net, with one bowler and the others waiting to receive the ball.

Each bowler bowls 24 balls with the batsman getting 3 consecutive balls.

If the batsman decides to leaves one of the balls then they may have another ball.

On receiving 3 balls the batsman must join the back of the queue.

COACHING POINTS

The bowler must bowl overarm, pitching the ball short and bouncing about waist height for the batters to reply with a back foot defence shot.

The aim for the batters is to hit the ball between the markers and defend their stumps.

Competitions can be set up between groups or you could introduce a rule that players must run between the wickets every time a ball is not hit between the cones.
