Fielding is a crucial part of the game and you will often hear players and coaches say ‘catches win matches’.
There are a number of techniques used to catch, field and throw the ball and most professional cricketers are now expected to be athletic and agile in the field – both to catch, stop the ball and pull off ‘run outs’.
A run out happens when the stumps are broken before a batsman can complete a run so quick work in the field is required. All players regularly practice throwing at the stumps as well as fielding the ball along the ground and catching.
