Corporate Cricket Indoor Festivals

Using the Sir Christopher Ondaatje Devon Cricket Centre at the Sports Park, these one-off evening events are great fun and fast-paced. We have adapted the rules to ensure a fun and fast-paced event and encourage everyone to take part. At the end of the evening there will be awards for the winning company, most runs, most wickets, worst batting record and fun moment of the evening.

What are the rules?

  • 5-a-side
  • 5 overs per innings
  • All players bowl 1 over
  • All players must face 1 over each; if they are given out they simply lose runs from the total and continue to bat
  • Increased sixes and fours scoring zones
  • Double-plays allowed - so a batsman can be caught and run out off the same delivery, or even run out at both ends
  • Special scoring area on the netting for bonus runs
  • There are no extra balls for wides (apart from the last over)
  • No leg before wicket (LBW)
  • A line halfway down the pitch to stop short-pitch bowling
  • Relaxed no-balls rules for bowling techniques
