Cricket Drill Demonstration


For this drill you need a wicket-keeper and a queue of bowlers at both ends of the wicket.

The first player takes their run up and bowls an off spin ball on one side of the cones down the middle towards the opposite stumps. Ideally the spin generated should make the ball cross over the line of cones and bounce up for the wicket-keeper to take.

Once the bowler has bowled they continue their run to the back of the queue on the other side and the drill repeats with the bowler at the other end.

Coaching points

Keep the bowling arm high at the point of delivery; to have effective loop the ball release occurs just before the arm reaches its vertical peak.

Use the fingers and wrist strongly to get the spin.

Do not restrict the follow through. Let yourself go with the momentum and keep your eyes on the ball at all times.
