The Countdown Festivals are a fantastic way for the 8–11-year-olds to experience cricket in a more competitive way by developing their teamwork and game awareness skills. The format is countdown cricket, based on the Hundred competition. Each innings will be 40 balls with everyone getting the opportunity to bowl, batters will bat in pairs for 10 balls. The aim is to gain as many runs as possible in the 40 balls, ensuring everyone has equal opportunity to score runs and take wickets.
