Nice variation on the leg-side game this morning, thanks to Oli Rae.
Batsman set up close to net on off-side, leg-side with targets at mid-on and square leg; random feed — short-of-a-length (for the pull stroke), bobble-feed on leg stump (on-drive).
Batters aware of leg-side options, but not able to set-up for pull or drive in advance of delivery.
- Outcomes: much improved striking by all members of the group. They were able to predict the stroke, but had to retain their stance until the ball was delivered.
- Additional learning: be aware of the gaps in the field, and target them when the opportunity arises.
