8-aside cricket for U9s and U11s

Somerset Cricket Foundation will host U9s and U11s Bradford’s Community Festivals an 8-aside cricket format for junior cricket teams across Somerset. The competition provides each team with an opportunity to practice, refine and challenge their skills in a friendly and sociable environment. The festivals are a great opportunity for both dynamos graduates and those newer to cricket.

Format

  • 8 per team.
  • Each batting team will face 40 balls.
  • Bowlers will bowl 5 balls and then rotate with next fielder due to bowl.
  • Fielders will rotate around the field, with 2 fielders on each side of the pitch and a wicket keeper at a safe distance behind the stumps, in a clockwise direction each time the bowler is changed.

Batting

  • Runs are hitting the over boundary 4 and 6.
  • Runs can also be scored for running between the wickets.
  • Batters can be out bowled, caught or run out.
  • For run outs the crease (i.e. area that the batter is considered to be safe) is marked by the batting tees at the batters end and a pair of cones at the bowlers end.
  • When a batter is out, the batter swap ends and continue (5 runs are added to fielding every wicket).
  • Umpires should use discretion to swap batters to ensure each faces a similar number of balls.

Bowling

  • Both underarm and overarm bowling is allowed, with a straight arm encouraged.
  • A ball will be called a no ball if arriving at the batter above the waist height, bouncing more than twice rolling along the ground or stopping.
  • All bowling is from the same end.
  • No-balls & wides are scored as 2 runs to batting team, and no extra delivery to be bowled.
  • A ball will be called a wide if it is outside of the batting tees (that make the crease).
