Cricket Drill Demonstration

Description

Divide the main group into smaller groups of 5 and organise as shown in the diagram.

When the batter calls "Ready" the bowler bowls overarm at a target in line with the stump, 3 metres in front of the batter, with one player acting as a wicket keeper in case the batter fails to make contact.

The batter should then hit the ball into the wall and try to make 2 runsĀ  without being caught or run out.

Coaching points

The wicket keeper must not be allowed to get too close to the batter.

Each player has 5 balls and gets 2 points for 'pulling' the ball through the marker cones.
