    Can you correct two short sentences?

    I'm not sure if they make sense or not.

    1. He is playing with a ball in the field. (play/ field)

    2. He is dribbling with the ball. (dribble/with)

    It is description of a picture which is common in the Toeic.
    I bought a book to take the test, but this book doesn't provide any answers
    for a picture. It just says 'describe the picture' and only key words are given.
    Usually the sentences used in the Toeic part 1 are present continuous, so I made up them using -ing form verbs.

    In the picture, you can see a man standing bending his knee to dribble a soccer ball.

    Thanks in advance
