Two teams play against each other. Try and make them as even as possible. One team bats and one team fields and bowls.
The fielding team places themselves around the field, they can adjust the positions according to how the batters plays.
The batting has one batter standing at the stumps and the rest is placed in the “pavilion” (some cones, a goal or even better a bench or chairs) and helps count points and plan tactics.
The bowler bowls the ball towards the batter and the batter must try and hit the ball away! (If you miss the ball you must run as well)
1 point is scored by running to one of the cones and back. You can keep running until the ball gets back to the bowler. Get as many points as you can!
The fielding team must pick the ball up and throw it back to the bowler as fast as they can. once the ball is back to the bowler the batter stops running. Be quick!
Batter change with they get “out”. This can happen when the bowler blows and hits the stumps or the batter hits the ball in the air and a fielder catches the ball.
All batters must bat.
Get more points than the other team to win!
