A progression could be to have player 1 run up to the stump to take the return if he misses the stump on his attemp.

2 LET the backup group stand at an angle to make the backing up more challenging and a match day situation.

I have found the various cricket drills to be very helpful. I am a P.E. teacher and have never played before, but am hoping to introduce the game to my middle school in Sept., and to perhaps form a team.

Any advice on where and how I should start? Can you recommend any other support material please?


Eric, do they open the batting and bowling because they are the best or is it because you are the coach?

they open for the club & the school where i have no say.most children do not like to open,as they believe the best bowlers are on.the open the bowling because they take the most wickets & only bowl 4 overs max.
the both play for the districts school team & have for 2 yrs,i find that i am more critical with them because i coach them.last season the lost one game only so they must be doing something right,
