So I assume I can go ahead and organise the 13 man game? There will be a pretty small match fee (round 30 bucks a person) and everyone will have to bring at least a six pack or if feeling generous a case of booze...

This is gonna be so hot! We may also need 2 capable umpires... were going to ask a few chicks but not sure how well that is gonna work out...

I have a pretty awesome 4 seam ball... it has a bit of water damage, but otherwise it's in very good working order. And from the sounds of things these balls swing like you wouldn't believe!

Can organise a pair of R/H gloves. Perhaps pads, & maybe some keeper gloves...

Helmet is a bit of a bugger, would be a bit sick having 13 people use 1... We could simply ban short balls?

Umpires

Post by no noodles »

This is a rather brilliant plan methinks...

We should arrange 14 players for the match. The guy going in 3 shall umpire (padded up) until either batsmen 1 or 2 go out, then batsman 4 goes to umpire until the next wicket falls etc. What do you think?

I also think it may be a wise plan and fun for all if batsman have to retire at 35, if he reaches 35 from the 1st ball of the over he is entitled to face the remainder of that over. This may allow us to get everyone in for a bat?

i like the first idea about umpires - totally works for me.

don't like the forced 35 thing. we should make it more of a "every batsman faces every bowler" thing, giving everyone 11 overs. i know it's slightly more complicated than that, but that's the general idea. you could technically even make 100 that way!

that's fine by me.

so when you're out you stay in til your 11 are up? kinda like the action cricket way?
the only problem i see is that we're gonna definately have to have someone checking how many overs each batsman has faced. i mean, heck, i don't think i could keep track of the amount of balls i've faced.
it's a bit unfair if it works the same as action cricket, your partner can easily hog all the strike, and that's not cool! otherwise we have each batsman face 66 balls excluding wides and no balls?

we're doing it this way to make sure everyone gets a bat. for the 22-man match, maybe we could do it the proper cricket way? also, i think that if you go out during your 11 overs you are fully out.

Yeah, for the proper match in jan i think we do it the proper way. as for now, perhaps we go with the 11 over thing... see how it works?

from my side i have the following ppl:

Andrew
Chris
Ross & his brother
Gary (only later tho he may have to work)
Ryan (until 3 on sat)
Craig
Riaan

that looks like 13 players... i'm pretty sure i can organise a couple more if some of these guys can't make it.

well, we can't have any players who are going to come late/leave early - i mean, we need some kind of consistency.

Also thinking about this.

I haven't had time in the middle since early high school. I know I'm out of form, and in the last nets session (after a bloody long break of no cricket at all) I was out in five balls.

So: Since the rust may be thick I like this idea of a fixed number of overs faced. Batsman scores negative runs for each wicket - very action cricket esque.

The problem of partner hogging all the batting could be an issue. How to solve it is beyond my small brain ...

i reckon we should all face a set number of balls (66 - 1 over per player) bar wides & no balls. if you go out you deduct 3 runs. It's rather simple, we just need to keep track of balls faced.

Works for me.

That is 858 valls bar wides/noballs = 143 overs

When are we starting? When is lunch?

Basically sounds like Action Cricket on an open field. Which sounds cool.
But I am so confused.
Am I playing?
If so, when? why? where?

And the staying in for certain number of balls is nice, really crappy to get out there and being outdone by a really good ball/bad shot selection on your second ball faced.

If am not playing, read earlier post regarding the sexual intercourse related insult and the threat of departing to my abode.

Not mentally retarded, just too lazy to read it.
Was hoping someone would read it for me and just summarise it ... and you did.

I win again.

i personally also agree with neil on the fact that you bat till you go out. No special rules or anything. Or play some test setup style if people go out too quickly then implement a second innings, but other than that i am just keen to play some cricket.
