Teams of 8 players in KS1, must be 4 Girls and 4 Boys.
Bat in pairs, 6 balls per pair (3 balls per player). If a ball goes through the ‘Gates’, players will score an extra 4 points. Accuracy and aim is very important for a high score. Once all 6 balls have been struck, the 2 batters start to run between the wickets to score as many runs as possible.
Fielders stay behind the red line and must not move until all 6 balls have been played by the batting pair. If a ball is struck directly at them, they are allowed to stop it and hold onto it until the final ball is struck. If a fielder catches the ball straight from a bat before it touches the floor, the batting team loses 5 runs. Fielders then run to collect all 6 balls and replace them on the Tees and return behind the red line to stop the batters from running.
Once all 8 batters (4 pairs) have played, the teams swap over.
