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!
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.
Boundary hits = 2 runs.
Overthrow = 4 runs if the ball goes over boundary
The winners are the pair with the most runs.
