Pre Season: Preparing your Batters with time in the middle

Give your batters some much needed middle time batting on grass; a chance to adjust to the pace and bounce of the wicket after a winter of playing indoors!

Preview Plan

Description

10-12 players are needed for singles cricket and players should pair up so that they can bat and bowl in pairs.

Each pair has 1-2 wickets, once these have been used those players are out.

The rules change depending on how many runs are scored. If the batsmen have scored between 0 and 15 runs they are allowed 3 good balls in which they must hit the ball and run, otherwise lose a wicket.

If they have scored between 15-30 runs the batsmen have 2 good balls in which they must hit the ball and run, otherwise lose a wicket.

Above 30 runs you must play hit and run, regardless of how the ball comes.

Above 40 runs the batsmen are awarded a bonus, if not out, of 10 runs and then they must retire.

Coaching points

Scoring:

Boundary hits = 2 runs.

Overthrow = 4 runs if the ball goes over boundary

The winners are the pair with the most runs.
