  • In the same order and shape another set of 7 cones and 6 sticks are placed right opposite at the right hand side.
  • Another pole is placed about 5 metre from the left side pole which is named as centre point.
  • The distance from centre point pole to bang opposite where the coach stands at another pole is 20 metres. This is in straight line.
  • A cone is placed at 10 metres from the coach’s pole.
  • A few cricket balls are with the coach.

  • A good balance and transfer of body position can be achieved by right alignment at the hip and shoulder. Do not drop the head forward to avoid falling over.
