The iBall, also known as a ball with a cord or a corded ball, is a type of training aid used in various sports, including cricket. The iBall consists of a regular ball, typically made of rubber or a similar material, attached to a cord or string. The cord is securely fastened to a handle or wristband worn by the player.
The purpose of the iBall is to help players practice their hand-eye coordination, reflexes, and catching skills. By using the iBall, players can improve their reaction time and agility as they try to catch or strike the ball while it is attached to the cord. The corded design ensures that the ball returns to the player after each catch or strike, allowing for continuous practice without the need for retrieval.
The iBall is often used in cricket training sessions, particularly for fielding drills, catching practice, and batting drills. It can be used individually or in group settings to enhance skills and develop quick reflexes. The iBall is available in different sizes and weights to cater to various skill levels and training requirements.
