Purpose: Fast moving, high pressure inner ring catch, throw and backing up. There is a lot of movement so is also good for fitness and focus.
Description: The ball is thrown out to the fielder who catches or fields the ball, and throws at the stump. After the throw the feeder moves to the back of the catching queue and the fielder moves to the back of the backup queue.
Meanwhile the backup fielder stops the ball, and returns the throw to the keeper on the stump. She then runs to the feeder position to deliver the next feed.
Variations: Feeds can come from a bowling machine or from a katchet ramp. The ball can be hit on the half volley from a bat. To encourage competitiveness, speed and accuracy you can keep score: For example giving a point for a clean pickup, a point for an accurate throw and so on.
