    Your Weirdest Backyard Rule?

    What would be your weirdest backyard rule?

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    If you could hit the ball through the hole in the shed, you would get 49 runs.

    We use to have a rule where the loser mowed the lawn.

    However, backyard cricket is a thing of the past in my household now.
    eep.

    if u hit the ball over the fence it was usually six and out but then we decided if u could hit the stumps from the other side of the fence u could bat again

    We used to have a similar thing. If you hit a 6, if you could gather it in a certain amount of time, you could bat again.

    this is in our old houses' front yard, at the end of the driveway was our street then a slight hill and footpath and then a very busy highway, and the rule was if you hit it and it landed on the highway road on the full thats out but if it landed in the middle grassed bit or over the highway which was about a 80 metre hit, it wasnt out. we had some nervous times trying to fetch the ball of the road in peak hour traffic.

    Playing cricket in the garage with the one door open, just in front of the bastman in the garage is an attic. If the ball is hit up there three possibilities.

    it stays there = out + batsman has to climb up to fetch
    falls down and is caught = out
    falls down but is not caught = not out

    hit against the wall = six
    hit over the wall = 6 and out

    If the ball lands in any plant it's out.

    If the ball goes into the neighbours house you were out. If it broke anything in the neighbours house you lost the next batting turn also and it went to the player who went and fetched the ball

    Where i play - the weirdest rule is:
    In the pool on the full is out... OR
    Can't get out first or second ball... OR
    2 x probable LBW's = out

    Hit it into the neighbours yard without the bowler standing a chance of stopping it no run. Stoppable runs count. Hit it back, catchable next door, six. Chip it next door not catchable, no run. Hit it for six without the bowler having a chance, six and out. Hit the nextdoor neighbours house on the full, no run and out. 5 overs, 3 wickets, 2 overs pace, 2 overs spin, 1 of choise
