Cricket: Catching the edged ball

Thanks to Sportplan and their coaching tips, I can now coach with...
Horatius, Cricket Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Setup the practice as shown.
  • The bowler throws the ball underarm towards the wicketkeeper. The batsman can either deflect the ball, leave it alone or swing at the ball and miss it (on purpose).

    Rotate positions after ten throws.

  • Wicket keeper may want to wear a helmet as a safety precaution.
  • COACHING POINTS

  • Maintain bent knees and ensure that the keeper moves sideways rather than cross over their feet.
  • Watch the ball into the hands.
  • Ensure the wicketkeeper watches the ball into the hands and keeps their eye on the ball at all times.
