    Top tips: All Stars Cricket batting zones

    Easy tips to take All Stars Cricket from your centre to home.

    Are you keen to keep the All Stars Cricket fun going outside of your sessions?

    That's where our top tips series comes in! We’ve covered bowling and catching so far and now here’s a game to make the most of your All Stars Cricket batting badge.

    This is one for getting as many of the troops involved as possible – ideally you will have at least three people to get the most out of the game.

    Batting scoring zones

    As always, you don’t need any special kit/equipment to get going – just find a space that suits (garden, park, safe street, perhaps avoid the living room), set up and play!

    To set up, grab your All Stars bat and ball, and four cones if you have them. If not, then substitute for anything suitable that you can use as a marker.

    Place two cones or markers on the ground to mark out your scoring zone. Take your remaining two markers and position a couple of metres behind the first two.

    Decide who is batting, who is fielding and who is going to feed the ball to the batter. Make sure everyone gets a turn in each role by swapping after every six attempts.

    Batting in this way with six free hits enables your little star (and you) to practise watching and hitting a moving ball and directing it into a particular zone.

    Stuart Broad delivers All Stars Cricket kit

    The England and Notts bowler paid a surprise visit to two All Stars, Hannah and Adi - delivering their very special All Stars Cricket kit and enjoying some back-garden cricket.

    The batter gets one run for hitting the ball through the first scoring zone and a massive four runs if it is directed through the second zone!

    As a fielder, you should attempt to stop the ball from going through the zones.

    There are also a few ways to make things a little more challenging – by decreasing the size of the targets and introducing more fielders, for example, or even creating your own scoring rules.

    If you and your All Star would like to keep playing, then move on to the batting garden games in our below video.
