This Sportplan session has been designed to help your players get off the mark at the start of their innings and start picking up singles!

As almost any batsman will tell you, the hardest part of batting is getting started and especially scoring that all important first run (nobody likes being out for a duck).

To help your players get started this session works on getting your players to score more singles to take the pressure off their shoulders at the start of their innings - as well as trying to get young players out of the 'four or nothing' mindset of batting!

Michael John Clarke, the Australian batsman, says that "the key to picking up singles is playing the ball with soft hands. This means you can drop the ball at your feet with as little pace as possible to give yourself more time to run to the other end."
