Cricket Drill Demonstration

Description

The batsman calls 'yes' to start the drill and tries to run 2 lengths whilst the fielder (player 1) runs out to meet the stationary ball, picks it up and throw it back to the wicket keeper (thus trying to run out the batter).

The coach decides which team has won and both players return to the back of their respective lines.

Drill continues in this way.

Coaching points

The wicket keeper throws the ball back to first fielder who replaces the ball on the ground, so that the race is ready for the next pair of players to go.
