Wicket keeping - Standing up footwork down legside
When standing up to the stumps and taking the ball down the legside, wicket keepers should:
- Anticipate the likely line and height of the ball.
- Push off the inside leg and make a long initial step to the onside.
- Stay low.
- Ideally take the ball in line with the head.
- Anchor the feet close to the wickets which will allow the keeper to make a stumping.
