Purpose: To practice chasing, picking up and returning to the wicketkeeper.
Description: The keeper or coach rolls the ball out for the first fielder to chase and return. To practice team throws, 2 players can chase, the first flicking the ball back for the second. The player then returns to the group. Variations: The player can stay out in the deep for the coach or keeper to hit a catch or ball along the ground for another return.
