Wicket Keeping

James Knott & Andrew O’Connor


This book is aimed at players and coaches (male & female) of all levels. James Knott and Andrew O’Connor have created a comprehensive and up to date guide to wicket keeping for coaches, players and parents featuring photographs and diagrams along with sixty accessible drills. 

A high percentage of modern wicket keepers are batsmen who are converted to wicket keeping as a second string to their bow. This is an essential guide for those players as the authors make comparisons between batting principles and wicket keeping principles while also providing guidance for coaches who aren’t wicket keepers themselves. With input from a wide range of elite players and coaches, past and present, this is an invaluable guide to developing wicket keeping skills for young and old alike.
