Cricket season for the ladies is coming to a close on a high. Afri Power Engineering is here to sponsor an action packed 6s tournament. The one day tournament shall be played in Lugogo on Sat Dec 1st. 

What’s a 6s challenge?

The Laws of Cricket apply, except:

  • Games are played between two teams of six players, and each game consists of a maximum of five six-ball overs bowled by each side (eight-ball overs in the final match).
  • Each member of the fielding side bowls one over, with the exception of the wicket-keeper.
  • Wides and No-balls count as two runs.
  • If five wickets fall before 5 overs are completed, the last remaining batsman bats on with the fifth batsman acting as a runner. He always takes strike. The innings is complete when the sixth wicket falls.
  • Batsmen retire not out on reaching 31 runs. The idea being to reach 36 runs by hitting 6 sixes. A retired batsman can return to the crease after lower-order batsmen either retire or are out.
  • A tournament points system awards two points for each match won.
