Cricket: Playing with spin off spin 2

Thanks to Sportplan and their coaching tips, I can now coach with...
Horatius, Cricket Coach

DESCRIPTION

Can be done in pairs/ groups of three. One batter, a feeder, and a wicket keeper. 4 incrediballs or cricket balls are recommended, as they have a seam to spin ball. 4 good quality feeds each.Player feeds from one knee, throwing ball under arm as an off spinner, with the key being a looped feed. (If players can’t spin it, a slow looped feed is sufficient). Feeder aims to land ball on a full length, and batter looks to play ball straight, through zone 1, to be marked out from between the stumps to mid wicket.NB – Left hander’s will still score through same zone, and should ideally be grouped together.

PROGRESSION Make target area smaller, if playing to square of wicket, make target straighter.Introduce points scoring system.Bring in Zone 2 (different scoring area for length balls)Change length of feedIntroduce coming down wicket or sweep shot.

COACHING POINTS

Batter is looking to play the ball with the spin, as an off spinner will spin ball from left to right. Players should be encouraged to hit ball on groundCones are set up to encourage batter to play as straight as possible, for as long as possible. Encourage high elbow on shot, and just a turning of wrist at last minute if playing further into leg side, rather than bat coming across pad.Try and play the ball out in front of pad if possible,
