KS2 Rapid Fire Cricket (AM Large schools/PM Small schools)
January 21 @ 9:00 am - 1:45 pmFree
- AM = Large School Session – 9am – 11.30pm
PM = Small School Session – 12.15pm – 1.45pm
Teams of 8 players in Lower KS2 (Year 3/4), must be 4 Girls and 4 Boys, 6 players in any game.
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 6 batters (3 pairs) have played, the teams swap over.
