Kwik Cricket

How to Play

Each Kwik Cricket team has eight players (both girls and boys) and bats for eight overs. Games are played with a plastic bat and ball. 

Although teams are generally eight a side, there are numerous ways in which different-sized groups of children can play Kwik Cricket – any number can play in a match, from two to 32. You simply adapt the game to suit the number of children involved and the available playing time.
