Purpose: To practice pickup, underarm throwing, backing up and returning to the keeper.
Description: The coach or wicketkeeper (c) rolls the ball out so a fielder from group 1 can run out, pick up the ball and underarm it at the stump. The first fielder in group 2 then backs up and returns the ball to the coach. Both fielders return to the back of their line. After 3 hits the groups change. The group who takes less attempts to get 3 hits wins. 1.
