    we don hav a keeper , if the batsman edges the ball and nif it crosses a line behind the stumps directlyt then the batsmans out
    I would like to watch bowlers dominate batsmen like a dog would a tail-wagging contest against a rabbit. Which means I spend most of my days fuming and cursing the game. The Newlands Test between South Africa and Australia has vindicated my belief that batsmen are a bunch of weak-minded, inept fools only good for waving about sponsor logos.

    in Limited over games
    if the batsman defends[0 runs] off 3 consecutive balls then the next ball is a free ball in which there will be no runs for the batsman but only an out

    A dropped catch rewarded the batting team with 20 runs. Great momentum booster

    Our rules..

    Auto Wicky.
    If you hit it over the fence you go fetch it but you get to keep your score next time you bat.
    No LBW
    If you get out on say 16 and you can get the batsman out when bowling without them making any runs you get to keep your score but if the batsman makes a run when your bowling you have to start from 0 again!
    Hit the empty pot plant (plastic) and knock it over 10 runs!

    Having not actually played a decent game of backyard cricket since moving house, I'll go with what we had at my old house.

    Driveway games: Top edging over the roof was 3 runs down to third man/fine leg.

    Backyard games: Hitting the hot water system on the full was out, but hitting the concrete slab that it was on or hitting it on the bounce was automatically fielded, and applause from players and crowd alike for the good fielding before play could continue.

    Batsman is given out if he does'nt hit the ball for 3 consecutive deliveries. A bit like baseball tbh.

    We have something similar, but you have to run on the third delivery (thats where some dirty tactics come into play. We also play if the ball bounces twice and you then headbutt it the batter is out, however its best not to use this when playing with a hard cricket ball.

    The wierdest(stupidest) rule i play with is that you are out if you hit it into the garden, which is on a right handers leg-side. Being only one metre behind the batter running the entirity of the pitch to the back 'boundary' it eliminates any flick shots of your 'pads', giving the bowler the luxury of bowling on leg stump all-day. Results in some pretty interesting shots being invented.
