Connor's stump shootout challenge
Around the Academy:

Clare Connor and Isa Guha celebrate a wicket for England
Was Isa celebrating with Clare after the shootout?
Hi, I'm Clare Connor, captain of the England women's cricket team and I've got a very simple bowling challenge.

My England team-mates Charlotte Edwards and Isa Guha have to hit the stumps as many times as they can from six deliveries bowling in the nets.

There's no need for a batsman - all you need is a set of stumps and a ball.

Sounds simple, but it's not as easy as you think.

Watch how Charlotte and Isa did:

It's even more fun if you're competing against a few mates.

Have a go and see if you can beat Isa's and Charlotte's score. Good luck!
