Cricket Drill Demonstration

Description


  • Set the practice up as shown.
  • Each player has 8-10 balls, then all rotate clockwise.
  • The coach calls bat up before feeding the ball for the batsman to drive the ball through the v shaped cones.

    If the batsman leaves the ball they get another ball. If they play and miss they do not. If players deliberately play cross-batted shots on leg side they lose that round. (Be strict on this point).

    If players hit the ball into the air, over the fielders, it does not count and they lose that ball. Make the last round competitive: who can hit all balls through target area along the ground? Fielders must stop the ball. On the competitive round, if a player gets out, all change round.


    Coaching points

  • Give groups 2-3 coaching points to work on.
  • Have 3-4 rounds each (depending on time limit).
  • For the first round of 8-10, play every other shot with the top hand only. (This shows the importance of the top hand.) Play further rounds with two hands.
  • Do not set up groups too close to one another - think safety!
  • Coach positions himself where he can monitor all groups safely.
  • The Drill is often used with
