Cricket Drill Demonstration


This drill can be done in pairs/groups of three (minimum one batter and one feeder required), with six tennis balls per pair/group.

Batter plays shot from one knee and progresses to ordinary stance when competent in the kneeling sweep position.

The types of feed should be rapid fire feeds, where hands only move, and balls are fed quicker. Move onto the types of sweep below, hitting:

  1. Orthodox sweep
  2. Paddle sweep
  3. Slog sweep
  4. Reverse sweep

Feeds need to be altered slightly here, quicker for the paddle, and wider and more looped for slog sweep.

Coaching points

Feeder can also call the name of the shot they are going to hit as they are fed the ball to further progress decision making.
