Series Match 2 - Test Match
Player Weighting: Some teams have now have 5 players others have 4. To balance the scores we have added a ‘player weighting’ score to the team scores. This player weighting is an average of the mental and physical challenges scored by your team and then added to your actual score to give your team a fair chance against those teams with more players.
We think this is a fair approach.

Activity – Batting – Building an Innings.
To score in the long game a batter needs to build on an innings. Self-discipline, dealing with the good ball, splitting the field to rotate the strike and the ability to punish the bad ball when / if it comes.
Your challenge – over 4 days you can bat a full 40 over innings. You will score by showing good throwing accuracy and tactical awareness.
What you need – A tennis ball. A pot, pan, small bucket or jug (not a household bucket… far too large), score card, pen/pencil and a relatively flat straight bowling track (no longer than 8 of your normal steps) with the ability to have a rebound at one end (wall, chair, cricket bag…).
Set up – Place your pot a couple of inches forward of your rebound. Walk 8 paces away from your pot and turn face it. You can make a mark on the ground at 8 paces or place an object to help you see. Have your scoresheet and pen/pencil available at the 8 pace point. This can be either in or outside (you may change locations if you wish. Indoors or out… wherever you fancy).
How to play – From 8 paces deliver your ball towards your object. Your intention is to land the ball into the object. It doesn’t matter how… bounce, directly, in-directly, rebound… it just needs to start 8 paces away. After each delivery collect your ball (only the one ball can be used), return to the 8 pace mark, note the delivery score on the score sheet and then deliver the next ball. You will do this as an ‘over’ – 6 balls per over. You have a maximum of 40 overs to score. You have 4 days to complete this task.
Scoring – The below describes the method of scoring (or not);
Miss the object completely – Dot ball.
Hit the object – 1 Run.
Enter then leave the object – 4 Runs.
Enter and remains in the object – 6 Runs.

Series 2 – Brain Trainer.
Twenty runs up for grabs here.
Twenty ‘CRICKET’ related words/names have been hidden within the square. There is a mixture of terms, positions, kit, places… anything remotely related to our beloved game of cricket. There may even be a two worded term!
You’ve got 4 days to find the words and gain some quick singles…
If you find all 20 words/names (the 20 as selected by umpire Andrew) you will be provided the opportunity to score ‘Extras’.
Submit your completed score sheet to the umpires via your Captain for a run check. If correct the opportunity to score extras will be awarded to you. If not your score sheet will be returned for you to have a 2nd innings.

Questions & Answers
As many attempts as you wish. Extras awarded on 20 correct answers
Each team member is batting. So each player can score runs. To score runs the player needs to find the words. So Yes – to score more runs each member submits their word search for scoring. When 20 is reached that player will receive a new opportunity to score runs for their team (and their own score tally).
