    If you hit a four on the leg side it's 1 run If you hit a six on the leg side it's two runs.

    We say (and this is serious) if it bounces more than once, if you kick it up in the air and then kick it at the bin/wicket its out

    The best way to play is if you have a video camera recording it when you have more than 5 people, you can see the lbw's again to see if they are actually right.

    .....

    If the ball hits the fence, it's a 6, if it goes over, you're out!

    My backyard cricket rules:

    If it goes over our house roof (two stories high) it is a score of 35 runs.
    If it hits the wall without bouncing it's a 4.
    If it hits the wall but either by rolling or bouncing, it's a 2 without having to run.
    If it hits someone hard, you have to bend over and get hit twice in the backside. (But if it was comepletely accidental, such as if the victim was running past, you don't have to get hit unless you feel really guilty .)
    If it goes up in a tree and is coming down, which is a very easy catch, you have to catch it with four fingers only.
    When bowling, you can choose how far away from the crease. you wanna bowl, but it has to be either 25-40 paces away from the crease

    Lol my weirdest rule is if you hit it and it rbounds of an abject and hits the stumps and your out the crease then your out. We also do Auto Wiki and slips I hand catches of the wall get 1 chance on stumpings.

    At our old place we used to bowl from the park (grassy area) over the road and the pitch was our drive way. The park went for about 60 metres straight from the bat until it became frontyards over th road. Directly straight (on the edge of the front yard over the road) was a powerpole and about 3 metres high was a metal power/phone box about 1m squared. Hit that and the batsman chooses between 20 runs or a life.

    Another rule is if you knock over a beer, yr out.

    You have to hit past a tree which is about 5 meters away to run off it. And if a run out is on u have jst hav to hit the shed door and they counted as the stumps.

    If there's a close LBW appeal the batter hits the ball in the air and the fielders have to catch it.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Rolls off the roof: headbutt it and catch it one handed and they're out.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Haha, used to play that one but it got too easy so we changed it to they're only out if the ball comes down, you header it, and it hits the stumps. We didn't use this rule when we played aiwth a real cricket ball, well not intentionally anyway...
