The rules are similar to those of Twenty20 cricket, with some modifications designed to speed the game up and to ensure that the game cannot be dominated by a small group of skilled players. As with orthodox over cricket, each team faces deliveries, however instead of being split into 20 six-ball overs, these are split into 15 eight-ball overs.
This reduces the amount of time spent moving between overs and enables the same amount of cricket to be played in a shorter time. In contrast to orthodox cricket rules, an extra ball is not awarded following a wide or no-ball, in order to save time. Instead, two runs are added to the score instead of the usual one run.
This rule does not usually apply for the last over of each innings to ensure that no strategic advantage can be gained from the deliberate bowling of a wide ball. The fielding side is limited to three overs per bowler, or in some formats only two overs.
This ensures that the majority of each team is required to bowl. The tactical implications of this rule for the fielding team captain are important as he must carefully decide when to bowl his experienced and inexperienced bowlers.
Batsmen are required to retire upon reaching a pre-agreed personal score, usually 25 or Should the side be dismissed with a number of batsmen retired, they may then return to the crease in the order they retired.
It is not unprecedented for a batsman to retire for a second or even third time in one innings. This rule ensures that the majority of a team will get a bat, and hence ensures the emphasis on the entire team both getting involved and being able to contribute to the final score. This informal format of cricket is extremely popular in the UK and is seen as the ideal way for new or inexperienced players to be introduced to the sport.Short Essay on a very exciting cricket Match that you recently witnessed.
