Maidens & U13 Girls enter Inaugral Vipers Indoor Cricket League
Wiltshire Cricket as part of their partnership with Kia Super League Champions, Southern Vipers, are starting the Wiltshire Cricket/Southern Vipers Indoor Cricket competitions this winter. Marshfield have entered two teams, one at under 13 level and an open age team.
What are the rules?
In short, the games will be played under “standard” indoor cricket rules:
- Teams will be six a side, match day squads will be limited to eight players.
- Matches will be ten overs long
- Players will be required to wear full batting kit as per the outdoor game
- Matches will not be “hardball”, but will use a suitable indoor type ball (as with the men’s indoor game).
- Boundaries will be scored by hitting the wall behind the bowler – 4s along the ground and 6s with direct hits.
- Runs will be scored for hitting the other walls/ceiling and for running between the wickets
- Batters will retire on reaching 25 or higher, with players able to return if overs remain at the end of the innings – last batter stands
- Maximum of three overs per bowler.
So, 2 competitions?
- The Under 13s competition is open to girls who are in school up to year eight.
- The Over 13s competition is open to girls and women playing Under 15s and adult cricket.
