Cricket Drill Demonstration



  • Set the bowling machine to delivering from around the wicket, swinging into the batsman.
  • Allow each player to hit 3 balls and rotate. 
  • Have the player hitting straight or through mid on
  • Coaches to observe at first before making changes.
  • Batter to hit from the front foot drive set position, knees and feet facing down the wicket.

Coaching points

  • Look for players being too side on and blocked off- open shoulders. 
  • Every now and again, bang a ball on the top of the machine, mimicing the sound of the ball coming to startle the player- this will show you if they can maintain the neutral position.
