I do wicketkeeping practice.
KL Rahul said I like to stand behind the stumps because you get the idea of pitch that how is pitch behaving? I give all the information related to pitch to bowlers and captains. Then according to that, Captain sets the fielding. After doing wicketkeeping for 20 overs, As a batsman, you get the idea that which shot I have to play?
