Cricket for Hire

Why not hire our classic, ever popular Cricket game?


The basic rules of cricket are;

  • A match is played between two teams with each team having eleven players (junior cricket teams sometimes have eight players). One player from each team is the designated captain.

  • One team fields while the other team is the batting side.

  • The fielding team bowls the cricket ball at the batsmen who tries to hit the ball with their bat. The fielding team is trying to get the batsmen out whilst the batting team is trying to score as many runs as they can without getting out.

  • One bowler will bowl what is called ‘an over.’ On over consists of six balls. Off each delivery a batsmen can either not score or score 1 through to 6.

  • If a ball is hit to the boundary along the ground it is worth four runs. If a ball is hit over the boundary it is worth six runs.

  • Each batting team is allowed to lose 10 wickets before they must switch around and be the bowling team (or 7 wickets for an 8-a-side team).

  • The object of the game is to score more runs than the opposing team.
