    It was usually 50 in backyard cricket but for driveway cricket at my neighbours it varied from 10 to 100.

    Quite often we'd have 20 runs retirement and you could only do drives or blocks because you were surrounded by things that were out on the full or one bounce.

    Just to add. I'll almost always retire if the game starts to get a bit boring I.E. if I'm smacking fours everywhere. Nothing worse than enjoying yourself in a game of backyard cricket and your mates being bored and ending up wanting to do something else.

    Which is why a retirement mark of 50 or something is always good...


    And doing a lot of unorthadox shots.

    I usually retire when I get to 100. Makes it fair.

    Sometimes I retire, sometimes I don't. It depends on the situation.
