New York Cricket Academy
The New York Cricket Academy cordially invites teams interested in participating in a six-a-side tournament scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 14th. to be held at Baisley South Cricket Ground located in Queens, NY 150th. St. and Baisley Blvd.

A maximum of seven (7) players per team are allowed to register before Sept. 10th.  Please send any questions or concerns you may have to  in reference to the tournament.

An entry fee is required and a monetary prize award is expected based on the number of participants.  Our goal is to accommodate eight (8) teams in which the tournament would be played on a knock-out format.

The tournament is made for excitement with rules and a venue that encourage aggressive batting and high scoring.  Because every player (except the wicket-keeper) is required to bowl one over, the format suits all-rounder’s.

Match Rules
• Matches are played between two teams of six players, and each game consists of a maximum of five six-ball overs bowled by each side (eight-ball overs in the final match.)
• Each member of the fielding side bowls one over, with the exception of the wicket-keeper.  Teams are NOT ALLOWED to switch wicket-keepers during the match.
• Wides and no-ball count as two runs.
• If five wickets fall before 5 overs are completed, the last remaining batsman bats on with the fifth batsman acting as a runner. He always takes strike. The innings is complete when the sixth wicket falls.
• Batsmen retire not out on reaching 31 runs. The idea being to reach 36 runs by hitting 6 sixes. A retired batsman can return to the crease after lower-order batsmen either retire or are out.
