Rules of Kwik Cricket
There are three different types of kwik cricket games - Pairs Kwik Cricket, the Lords Game and Continuous Kwik Cricket. In a Pairs Kwik Cricket Game, the goal of the game is to get the most number of runs. 8-10 players are allowed to participate during this match. Players can go more than ten each per team especially in matches where children are involved. An alternative version of the pairs kwik cricket game can be played as a team game. This form of pair kwik cricket is played closest to the structure of the conventional cricket game. The Lord’s Game, on the other hand, is played in teams of four and five players each.
Playing Quick Cricket
In a quick cricket game, two sets of wickets are placed 17 yards apart. Six to 9 players make up a team. A toss coin decides which player bats or fields first. One inning will be played per team with 6 balls or overs per inning. Each pair bats for 2 overs with a new pair starting at the beginning of the third and the fifth overs. Each team starts with a score of 200 runs. Five runs are deducted to the other batter whenever a batter is out. Batters may be bowled, caught, run out, hit the wicket and stumped. No LBW rules apply unless the batter intentionally kicks the ball with a leg or foot. Runs and byes are scored normally. The team with the higher score wins the tame after the inning.
