    My School Yard Cricket

    This just a place for me to think about my high school cricket game.

    Equipment:
    Players- Up to 6 (1 bat, 4 field, 1 bowl)
    Bat- Block of wood or Small bat (30cm long)
    Ball- Tennis Ball
    Stumps- A block of limestone (30cm high) or a stool.
    Pitch- The pitch was only about 6 meters long, so we were only allowed to bowl spin.
    When- Before school for 20min, recess for 15 min and lunch for 35min.
    Running- There was no running between the wickets as there was no second batsman, or second set of stumps.

    Scoring:
    Four- The back wall, on the bounce.
    Six- The back wall, on the full.
    Six'n'Out and Four'n'Out- Over the back fence on the bounce or full.
    Murcs- Loosely based on the Mer****ile Sign in Australian state onedayers. These were through a fork in a tree and through an open door, and worth TEN runs.

    Getting out (very easy):
    Caught- Both 1H1B and on the full.
    Bowled- Have a guess.
    Stumped- If ya danced.
    Hit Wicket- Can be done.
    Over The Fence- Hit over the fence and your out!

    Scores you get:
    High score- 300+ (against me, and only me).
    Ducks- Often (but only for me).
    My high score- 125 (I only got two centuries in over 2 years of playing).

    Have you got any questions?

    Yes how did you score 125 made up of 4's, 6's and 10's?
