    We have:

    over fence on full - out

    over fence of body (playing against back fence) - not out if you get the ball in a reasonable length of time

    Ive got a big garden so it can be rather fun.
    Past the garden and you get a 4, past the garden with no bounce and its a 6. Can only get 4 or 6 by hitting it straight down the garden.. If it goes over the fence, out with no runs. Ball can be stopped by almost everything. Once we played cricket and i hit the ball and it got caught by the Lawn Mower! Another time was when i was gonna hit a four and my cat got in the way! My brother once got ran out by my cat. Dont ask how. The cats ok though. I also like the rule. Over the house and 10 runs. And you stay in only if you can find the ball. Over the house and never been done yet though.Hehe. Oh im not from West Brom.

    Backyard Cricket

    The Ground: A small grassy area just outside my house. The boundaries are comprised on the off side in the form of a mildly busy road, on the straight boundary is a fence covered with brambles with a field of corn behind it and behind the batsman and on the on side are houses except for a small area near to the field end where there is a front garden hedge. There is also a big tree that sits about 2 metres off the square. The square itself is generally flat with no bumps except for when it dips just about where the perfect lengthed ball should be pitched creating all sorts of odd bounces.

    Teams: Due to the idiots that live in the village, teams are generally restricted to only one

    Scoring: Singles and twos are unheard of in this version of the game. Runs also cannot be scored by hitting the walls of the houses (unless the ball then bounces to any other boundary) but can by hitting the ball onto the road, hedge, fence and field. Runs can't be scored behind the batsman when there is no one there to be a wicketkeeper. If the ball goes across any boundary: Bounces - 4 runs, No bounce - 6. When the ball its the wall it doesn't count as a bounce.

    Dismissal: Batsmen can be out in all standard ways - most common are bowled and caught. However batsmen are also out if they hit the ball into neighbour's gardens or lose the ball in the field. Batsmen can also be caught off the wall as long as the ball hasn't bounced. No automatic wicketkeeper.

    The Ball: Ranges from a Slazenger training ball, to a Readers Swing Ball to a tennis ball...depends what hasn't been lost, all add different things to the game.

    Fairly length but quite a full set of rules

    My garden rules

    10 mins each, highest score after 2 innings and you win!

    Hit tree- 4, unless you are caught one-handed in which case you are out
    Hit fence on full- 6
    Hit fence after 1+ bounces- 4
    Over the fence- Out unless you can retrieve it within the remainder of your batting time
    Edge and caught on chair- Out
    Hits kitchen on french doors- Wide
    Beamers- If you get hit, no-ball
    Bouncers- The more painfull, the better!

    Its hard not to bowl bouncers- becuase in the peak of the heat, the pitch is hard and dry, so any good length ball is a jaffa, as it either takes your head off, or sends your middle stump cartwheeling.

    Its more of a geographical danger zone than a ten10 pitch- Green, Dusty and really Hard

    If you hit it over the fence on the leg side twice in one over, you get 6 runs and you're out. Batsman and bowler take turns getting the ball.
    Hit it over the fence to the off side and you're out for no runs (it's much harder to get into the garden on the off side) and the batsman gets the ball.
    Hit a window and you're out.
    Hit it through an open window and you get 50 runs and are out.
    Play the ball onto the fence behind you and you're out.

    hit the ball up so it hit a 30-foot-in-the-air and 1-foot-thick tree then it bounces back and you catch yourself out = 111 runs + not out
