Improving players' stump throwing accuracy

Rating: 3
from 5 members ratings

As games come down to the wire and the final few overs require a few riskier runs, as the fielding team, you?ll likely be faced with some great opportunities for a run-out or two.

Many fielders get a bit over excited and look to fizz the ball in as hard as they can. However in this session, develop your fielders ability to take a breath, aim and release with a variety of different techniques depending on how close to the stumps and given the amount of time allowed for the situation.

Make your players aware of how they don?t have to just fizz the ball in as hard as they can. Think about throwing it underarm. How about kicking the ball instead, it might be faster and make all the difference to beat the sliding batsmen. Either way, get your team over the line first with some brilliant direct hits.
