Kwik Cricket (Ages 5-11)
Kwik Cricket is the fun way of getting boys and girls aged five to 11 into cricket and developing basic skills.

Kwik cricket

The game is played with a plastic bat and ball and each team has eight players with at least one girl - and bats for eight overs.

The team is divided into four pairs with each pair batting for two overs each.

You start with 200 runs, and that's not a bad starting point.

Every member of the fielding side has to bowl one over each - over-arm if possible, but underarm is also fine.

Every time the batter gets out, five runs are taken off the total and the batters swap places.

But you can score runs exactly the same as in normal cricket to increase your total.

You can only get out by being bowled, caught, stumped, run out or if you hit your own wicket.

If a wide or a no-ball is bowled then the batting side get an extra two runs - but no additional ball is bowled except during the final over.

And you're not allowed any fielder within 10 yards of the batsman - except the wicketkeeper.
