Purpose: To practice fielding against drives as well as grooving batting drive technique.

Description: Players are split into teams of 6. The batting team are aiming to score as many runs as possible from a bobble feed from the coach.

The batsmen can be out if they don’t drive the ball past the stumps, are caught or run out with a direct hit.

The batsmen score 1 run by hitting the ball and running to the other end without getting run out. They score 4 if they get the ball pat the last fielder.

Once the batsman is out the next batsman continues until everyone is out and the teams change over.

Variation: Stick to one side of the wicket and work on just on or off drives.
