Running between the wickets

Im looking for some good game based practices to focus on running between the wickets

hi lisa,

what age group is this plan for?

Adults who are between basic and advanced level

Hopefully this will improve calling and running between wickets. Put players into pairs. The rest of the players set up in the fielding positions set by the bowler.

• Each pair faces two overs and then two new players replace them.

• If batsman facing or the batsman at the other end do not call correctly they lose a run.

• If a batsman is out they lose 2 runs and change ends. I they are run out out they lose 4 runs and whoever is responsible for the runout goes to the non-strikers end.

• They batting pair with the most runs wins

You could modify the rules to give the fieldsmen some reward for outstanding fielding - a catch, fielding save, throw, backing up etc.. ie. an extra 5 min next batting practice session or something else you feels fits the task.

The more fun you can make it the better the players will respond.

 

Good Luck.
