Description: Two stumps are placed between two teams. The coach rolls the ball out and calls which stump should be aimed for. The fielder picks up and shys at the stump. The other team back up the throw then attempt to hit the stump as called by the coach. Score 5 points for a direct hit, lose a point for a misfield.
