Purpose: To practice the pick up and return running from the left or right.
Description: The coach (c) rolls the ball out for the fielder to runs across, pick up and return the ball to the keeper. After each fielder has thrown from one side, repeat from the other side.
Variations: You can attempt to throw down the stumps instead without a keeper (using a wall or netting to prevent overthrows).
