Fielding Drills: Rob the Nest

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

Purpose: To develop speed, agility and ball handling skills in a pressure situation

Description: Set up cones in two rings as shown below. The inner ring (nest) contains a number of cricket balls. 2 fielders are inside the larger circle as defenders. The rest of the fielders walk around the outside of the circle and are attackers.

The attackers must run in to try and pick up a cricket ball and return back to outside the larger circle. The defenders prevent this by tagging players as they run through. If an attacker is tagged he or she must return to the outer ring.

Once all the balls are cleared, 2 new defenders are chosen.
