Diamond Cricket – Year 3&4
Date(s) - 03/05/2017
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Team of 10 (minimum of 2 boys or 2 girls)
Batting – Only four players can bat at one time; the remaining batters should wait in a safe area ready to come in.
Fielding – Fielders spread out (but no-one can start by standing inside the ‘diamond’). A fielder at each set of stumps (as a wicket-keeper) is a good idea.
Bowling – The bowler stands in the middle of all four stumps (stumps set out in a diamond shape).
The Game – Bowler bowls underarm or overarm at any set of stumps. Batters can run if they hit or miss the ball. All four batters run at the same time – in an anti-clockwise direction – with no overtaking. One run is scored when all batters advance safely to next wicket. As soon as the bowler receives the ball back s/he can bowl it again at any stumps so the batters always need to be ready.
The team with the most runs wins.
Ways of being out – Caught, Bowled, Hit wicket, Run out. When a batter is out, the next batter comes in to replace them.
Staff from the schools that enter the competition will be umpiring the games.
