Teams are made up of 8 players. Teams can be a mixture of boys and girls. All players will have the opportunity to both bat and bowl.
Bowling: 5 balls per player then rotate with the next fielder to bowl.
Batting: In pairs (10 balls per pair)
Runs: Are scored by hitting past the boundary (4 runs), over the boundary (6 runs) or by running between the wickets. No-balls and wides are scored as 2 runs to the batting team and no extra delivery to be bowled.
Free hit*: Following a no-ball or wide, the batter receives a 'free hit' from the batting tee, and any runs scored are added to the total for that delivery (e.g. 2 runs for a wide + 1 run from the free hit = 3 runs scored). Batters have three seconds to take their free hit. *Cones can be used as batting tees also.
Out if: Bowled, caught or run out (if out, batters swap ends and continue, 5 runs is added to the fielding team)
