Set up

  • Two cricketers stand one behind another maintaining a distance of about 3 feet.
  • Coach stands with total 6 balls in his hands that he will feed.
  • The wicketkeeper with gloves stands in front in the first round. In the second round he stands behind.

Technical cue

  • Both the cricketers must stay on the ball of their feet.
  • Feet well apart to form a nice and stable base
  • Balance and anticipation is the key.
  • Cricketer behind should expect every ball coming his way.
  • Cricketer in front should leave the ball as late as possible giving the impression that he is about to catch it.
  • Leaving the ball late will make it difficult for the man behind. His reflexes will improve.
  • While turing during the four shuttle runs focus on maintaining good balance with a wide base of feet.

Reps and sets

  • 6 reps make 1 set
