Last Man Stands

Post by Spitfire »

Hi Guys

I came across this website called Lastmanstands.com
Its a new cricket league that is very similar to our form of the game.

Last Man Stands is an innovative new game of cricket that involves 8 players. All 8 wickets are needed to bowl a team out. When the seventh wicket falls, the Last Man Stands on his own). For detailed LMS rules go to
http://www.lastmanstands.com/default.jsp

There are cetain other rules that where taken for Baseball which are different.

The other rule i picked up was that a game only lasts 2 hours
PENALTIES FOR NOT BOWLING OVERS IN TIME

* When fielding first - Every over bowled after 65 min will be deducted from your batting innings eg. if 2 overs are bowled after 65 min, your team will only receive 18 overs when batting.
* When fielding second - if you go over time limit, your team looses any bonus points obtained in the game. If no bonus points are obtained in game, your team will loose 2 league points obtained from that game or previous games.
Let me know what you all think maybe we can enter a single OCC Cricket team and teach these guys how its done.

Irreverent gay humour included.[/b]

Initially i was like this is total shit what are you talking about but having read it i think it is the perfect solution!!!

The Last Man may can only score 2, 4 or 6 off any ball. The ball is only dead when the batsman is behind the popping crease at the strikers end of pitch.

If a player clears the ropes (i.e. hits a six) off the last ball of the innings it is worth 10 runs! This rule applies to both the first and second innings.

Two players can be dismissed off the same delivery.

CAUGHT OUT and RUN OUT: When the striker is out caught .The non striker has to remain or return to the bowlers end of pitch. The ball is only dead when the non striker has grounded his bat at the bowlers end of the pitch.

There is NO double play rule when a batsman is given out, L.B.W., stumped or bowled.

FIVE BALLS PER OVER

MAXIMUM OF 6 BALLS IN AN OVER

* The first wide or No ball in an over equals one extra ball in the over. A run is added to the score.
* Any further wide/no ball in an over will result in an extra 3 runs to the batsman on strike but no extra delivery
* In the Last Over of an innings all wides /no balls will result in an extra ball and run, i.e. there is no limit to balls bowled and only one run is added to all wides / no balls

MAXIMUM OF 4 OVERS PER BOWLER

FIELDING RESTRICTIONS

* A maximum of three fielders on each side of the pitch at all times (ie.3 fielders on offside and three on onside)
* The wicket keeper has to be within 15 metres of the stumps (i.e. keeper not long stop)

RAIN AFFECTED GAMES

* Every 3 and a half minutes off the field will result in an over being lost in the game.
* Both teams have to bat a minimum of 8 over to constitute a game.

PENALTIES FOR NOT BOWLING OVERS IN TIME

* When fielding first - Every over bowled after 65 min will be deducted from your batting innings eg. if 2 overs are bowled after 65 min, your team will only receive 18 overs when batting.
* When fielding second - if you go over time limit, your team looses any bonus points obtained in the game. If no bonus points are obtained in game, your team will loose 2 league points obtained from that game or previous games.

ONE 'SHOULDER HIGH BALL' PER OVER

* After a ball has passed shoulder height, the umpire is too indicate 'one' for the over.
* All balls shoulder height there after will be deemed a NO BALL.

FULL TOSS

* Full tosses above waist height are deemed a 'No Ball'.

RETIRE @ 50

* Once a batsman has 50 runs to his name, he has to retire. He may return to bat should all other wickets fall.

Yeah - I also like it. I do think we'd need to see what it would cost to enter a team. Then we'd need to hold squad selections. Maybe two teams.

The reason I like it is the time restriction to a fixed 2 hours. I could totally play every week if it was limited to two hours.

I am concerned about the every week schedule - we may need to pick a side of 10 or so, to allow rest weeks for players.

Who's going to liase with LMS on this one? I'll email initially to just ask questions like cost, team availability, forfeitures etc etc.

I don't think we should enter their league i think we should play in our social league but with these rules....

It sorts out the time commitment issue as well as the wides issue.

Plus i don't think i am fit enough for 30 overs (especially judging by last week!!).

Eh? their league is 20 overs. 20 5 ball overs. Ours is 30. What do you mean fit enough?

But that siad I've also had some negative feedback from Russel. And if it is "Play every week" I can't commit to that.

But adapting the rules to suit us is a good idea. The time limit rule is great. Maybe make our 30 over limit in 2.5 hours (5 min an over - ICC rules sit at 4.2 min an over for limited overs (14.28 overs per hour)) or even better - shorten the game to 20 overs at 5 min an over (1 2/3rd of an hour an innings).

i also feel we should adapt the rules to our own game.

and bringing the overs down to 20 each will definitely make the game more attacking, hence helping my "action cricket" style game :D

Yeah i agree let's not play every week but let's adapt their rules to our league!!

And the fitness issue relates to the 30 over game not the 20 over game. I think i like the 5 ball per overs rule. I find my 6th ball is the most tiring....

Darren, the shorts are as tight but much brighter. Brings out the Camel-Toe more.

The rest:

I am keen on the idea of adapting their rules to suit us. I think the 20 over idea is great. I don't like the 5 ball over though. I would prefer that we play the 6 ball over but just get through the overs quicker.

I also don't like the idea of joining a league for this form of cricket. Personally, i would join a league to play real 11 man cricket. This I can do at the local club down the road from me and which I plan on doing next season.

I hear that but it won't take two hours to play a league game...

But lret me know i am keen to join as well. I did actually join a team but didn't like anybody (or maybe they just didn't like me?). Anyway it is only cool to play cricket with people you like otherwise there is no point.

What i like about these rules is the fact that it does speed up play. Thus we would have no problems with Alex and Russel etc. I agree however that we should stick to doing this in our own league. I wouldn't pay money to join a league to play this kind of cricket and would rather join a real cricket league instead.
