Teams can be colts, veterans, parents or even just mates from different club! Enter now and give even more people a chance to play cricket. WHAT IS DIFFERENT? LMS is an exciting and challenging way to play cricket with some slight rules changes to keep the games fun, inclusive and quick. - 8-a-sideTwenty20 matches - Each game is completed in 2 hours making it the perfect game to play on an evening - Umpire/scorer, match ball and venue are all organised for you, just turn up and play! - 20 overs are played, but with 5 ball overs, not 6 - Sides can only be bowled out once all eight players are dismissed - so "Last Man Stands" - You score 12 if you hit the final ball of the innings for 6! - Teams can progress to Local, Regional, National and World Championship finals - Social and competitive teams all welcome - Local, National and World rankings for all players with statistics and scorecards WHERE AND WHEN?
