Requirements: - Three cricket wickets; a stick about 9 inches long, to act as a bail; a tennis ball and a wooden club or hand bat.

The Pitch: - As for cricket but with single wicket at bowler's end and with two wickets at batsman's. end (as for cricket but with center stump removed). The bail is laid along the top of the wickets.

The Game: - One player bats at a time. (When numbers are few both sides should field.)

The game is commenced by the bowler bowling underhand to the batsman in an effort to pass the ball between the wickets without removing the bail. (A rule might be made that full pitches only could be bowled.)

If the ball goes past it is returned to the bowler.

If the bowler succeeds in passing the ball between the wickets, without removing the bail, the batsman is out.

If the batsman hits the ball and is caught, (either direct or from the first bounce) he is out.

If the batsman touches the ball with his "bat" he must attempt to score two runs by running to the bowler's end and back again. The ball is promptly returned by a fieldsman to the bowler, who immediately tries to bowl the ball between the stumps, irrespective of where the batsman is. If the bowler succeeds the batsman is out, if he fails he bowls again with the batsman defending his wicket.

If a batsman is caught or bowled while running between the wickets those two runs do not count to his credit.

Each side bats in turn and the team scoring most runs wins.
