Cricket Catching Drills

A form of dismissal is to catch the ball without it touching the floor after it has hit the batsman's bat or glove.

A wicket keeper will have gloves to help catching the ball, but it is illegal for any other player to have a catching aid. Specialist catching positions, such as slip fielding (behind the batsman), are especially important for fast paced bowling.

Our drills highlight the correct techniques your players should be using, such as how to hold their hands together, for low (waist and lower) and higher catches.
