Izaak Lions Cricket Club Thursday Night Twenty20 Matches

Pub Rules


You can’t be out first ball (this allows for some interesting swipes!)


You can’t be out LBW (we can’t tax the umpire’s brain too much, and I can’t find a DRS supplier on eBay)


Batsmen must retire once they score 25 runs, however...


If wicket 9 falls, then any batsmen retired ‘Not out’ can come back in. Rule 3 then reapplies for this innings, i.e. they must retire again at 50.


Everyone must bowl two overs.


A maximum of two wides or no-balls are counted per over – a third wide, for example, is declared a dead ball and rebowled.


The home team provides food after the match.


Optional Rules

Good humoured banter is optional but desirable – this is supposed to be fun, after all!

Anyone trying a reverse sweep and missing, can be heckled with calls of ‘Oooh, get you!’

Over-celebrating a fall of a wicket along the lines of Monty Panesar’s skipping will be fined after the game in the bar.

And remember, it’s better to have a good game and lose, than have a bad game and win. ☺
