Cricket Wicket - keeping Drills

Wicket-keeping is a specialist fielding position behind the batsman. The wicket-keeper is the only person legally entitled to wear gloves as a fielding aid.

The speed of the bowling will determine where the wicket-keeper stands; if slow bowling they may stand closer to the stumps.

The position of the wicket-keeper also determines where the slip fielders stand (to the wicket-keeper's right if the batsman is right handed).
