Following on from the positive feedback on the standing back keeping drill using the multi-stumps I thought I would follow up with another keeping drill that was given to me recently by one of our International players here at Millfield School.
Tom has developed this drill with Iain Brunnschweiler in a recent England tour to the UAE.
You'll need a Katchet Ramp, multistump, Bat or Skyer and some cricket balls.
The aim is to simulate standing up to the stumps to both medium pacers and spinners, focussing on areas such as posture, hip and shoulder turn, catching area, and the ability to react to significant deflections from a realistic "nick-distance". In other words, to push back the boundaries of what is possible when standing up to the stumps.
