Fielding Drills: 4 Stump warm up

This drill is part of the PitchVision Academy fielding drills series, for more in this series click here.

Purpose: To act as a warm up drill that practices every ground fielding skill required in a match. Each stump is a different skill to execute.

Description: The coach (c) rolls the ball out to the first fielder who underarms at the stump. Fielder 2 backs up and throws the ball to the wicketkeeper (w) before running up to the same stump.

W then rolls the ball out for fielder 2 to chase, pickup and throw to fielder 3. Fielder 3 throws the ball on the bounce to fielder 4 who aims to hit the last stump.

This throw is backed up by the final fielder who returns the ball to the coach. Players follow the ball to rotate around the drill.
