Last Man Stands

Rules & Regulations / How to play

Want to play cricket but struggling to find time in your weekly schedule? Last Man Stands could be the perfect fit for you.

The eight-a-side amateur Twenty20 league works perfectly with modern life and professional and personal commitments, allowing you to play on your terms.

The rules are simple and allow for a fun, fast game:

– Each game is completed in less than two hours, making it perfect to play on a weekday evening
– Innings consist of 20 overs, with five balls per over instead of six
– Each side is comprised of eight players instead of the regulation 11
– Sides can only be bowled out when all eight players are dismissed, hence “Last Man Stands”
– As an extra incentive, you score 12 if you hit a six off the final ball of an innings!
