Around the Academy:

The Wales cricket team celebrate their win over England in 2002
Fancy playing cricket for Wales one day?

Fancy trying out some cricket, but stumped about how to get started?

How about Dragon Cricket? It's a great way to learn all about the sport.

Aimed at the 7-11 age group, the rules are simpler than the full version.

But it'll still give you a good grasp of the physical and technical skills you need.

The game is played between two teams of five - one batting, one fielding.

The pitch has two sets of wickets and two markers at the side to run around.

Bowlers bowl the ball underarm from at least 10m away.

Batters must run around the marker of their choice and back - scoring one run each time they complete the circuit.

The batter is out if the ball is caught, the ball hits the wicket or the batter hits his own wicket.

When all the batters are out the teams change over.

We're sure you agree it sounds like great fun. Why not give it a go!
