The deep fielder has to catch or gather the ball and throw the ball to the nearest post player who has to touch the post with the ball after which the post player throws the ball back to the next player in the batting square.

Rotation the player that hit the ball runs anywhere into the field to be the next target. the previous fielder has to run to the post they threw the ball to and the post player goes to the back of the line of waiting players.

Coaching points

It is important that the batter hits the ball towards the deep fielder to make the gathering time short and keep the practice moving.

Note that if one of the post players can catch the ball the should, in this case the deep fielder would replace that post player and the post player would just throw the ball back to the next batter and move to the back of the line of waiting batters.

Advanced this practice can also be used to explain the various tactics involved for the ball being hit in the different areas and the depth of the field.
