Hi, I’m Jack and I’m here to teach you how to catch a really hard ball in cricket. www.illawarraeducationfoundation.com So the main two tips in cricket are walking with the bowler when the bowler is running in, and keep your eyes on the ball at all times because if you’re not looking a ball could be belted at your head and you could sustain severe injuries. One more tip! Always have your body behind the ball. Otherwise if you don’t you’ll drop the catch and it’ll go for a boundary.
