Cricket Drills | We Coach Cricket take on “Think Outside the Box” from Crazy Catch

You Tubers We Coach Cricket have taken inspiration from our Tammy Beaumont Think Outside the Box drills which we filmed last year which show the versatility of the product and how creative you can get with your coaching drills to improve batting, bowling and fielding skills!

How to MASTER the SHORT BALL with a Crazy Catch

This one specifically is used for training against the short ball, whether your duck, sway or play the choice is yours. The Crazy Catch really mixes up the feed as it rebounds off the net erratically so each ball is different and really keeps you on your toes!

How can I BAT on DODGY Wickets?

In this session Dan and Kieran look to recreate the batting against spin using the Crazy Catch. They have the Wildchild Classic and Upstart Classic laid flat with the INSANE sides facing up for extra unpredictability. This is a great way to practice batting on some of those dodgy uncovered pitches in the UK!!

This We Coach Cricket series is in partnership with Crazy Catch retailer Serious Cricket – SHOP HERE 

Wicket Keeping Training Drill | Cricket

Think Outside the Box and take your wicket keeping skills to the next level. Tammy Beaumont demonstrates a STUMPING AND CATCHING drill using the Crazy Catch Upstart INSANE side which creates an unpredictable rebound simulating deliveries off the pitch and balls which “nick off ” the bat or glove. This drill works on movement behind the stumps and dealing with deflections.

Tammy’s Top Tip – “This drill is great to test out your movement as a wicket keeper. As your confidence grows you can test out how far you can cover with the angle of the Crazy Catch. Look to move fast and late. The most important thing with this drill is to get your head as
close to the ball as possible, because your hands will always follow”
