Cricket Drill Demonstration



  • Set up two cones half way down the wicket, one central and one leg side.
  • Feed from around the wicket with a bobble feed.
  • Batter to hit from the on drive set position, knees and feet facing down the wicket, and aiming for the two cones. 
  • Back lift over first/second slip, hit a straight line through the ball to the target area.
  • Batter to hold the shape, and take small steps towards the direction of the shot to the cone. 

Coaching points

  • Ensure feet and knees are facing down the wicket. "Laces down the wicket".
  • Shoulder out of the way for an open chest. Easier to go from open to close rather than close to open.
  • Head over the front foot.
