unfortunately not all of us are blessed with brothers, my games with my sister usually went like this:

me: wanna play cricket?
sis: yeah alright but only if im allowed to bat first!
me: ok

*sis is dismissed after a few balls

sis: i don't want to play anymore, i'm going inside

grrr :(

even with those setbacks we managed to have some great games :)
those were the days!

we usually used one of those cricket sets you get at k-mart or whatever until we lost the ball hehe, and many an argument was had over automatic wickie. my sister's trademark shot was the left handed sweep slog over the short leg side fence losing the ball :mad: mine was the long straight drive for 4 :D
tathi
cricket + beach = phwoar

else = boring

soccer is where it's at :)

why lie for phil? i reckon it went more like this;

you: wanna play cricket?
your sis: yeah alright but only if you dont cry if i hit you with the ball
you: ummm ok i promise
your sis: bowls a corker and hits you in the throat
you: cries to mummy and asks for hugs to make it better

i hate beach cricket! it eliminates my one formidable weapon... spin bowling. stupid sand, its like specifically made to deter spin bowlers and lessen their impact. perhaps we should put sand on our pitches when murali comes over... perhaps we should dress as women and parade around in the streets... :conf:

dog can catch the ball on first bounce.

garden patch = out if you cant reach it without stepping in.

full blown full tosses @ body is well within rules unless females batting.


6 and out if it goes over fence and you dont get it.

Pointy
Fellas ur forgetting the most important rule for any intense backyard game - tipidy. Nuff said :)
JulesPLees
Milk crates as wickets
One hand one bounce when you dont have many fielders
Automatic keeper
Over the fence six and out

and for true Coburg stylez...you gotta tape the ball up and then tape tennis racket strings along the ball to make a seam
