T20 Rules

BBL BASICS

The primary objective of the game of cricket is to score runs and take wickets, T20 matches are played by two teams of 11 players and take three hours from start to finish. Deciding the winner is easy – whoever has the most runs on the board after both teams have batted claims the bragging rights.

SCORING RUNS

Batters play in pairs with one located at each end of the pitch/wicket, standing behind a white painted line (the crease) that essentially marks out their safety zone. The aim of the batters is to hit the ball into a space away from the fielders and run from one end of the pitch to score as many ‘runs’ as possible.

TAKING WICKETS

The aim of the bowler (and the fielding team in general) is to take wickets. This means ending the innings of one of the 10 batters in the opposition team.

SETTING THE FIELD

The team’s captain distributes the players around the field. During the first six overs only two fielders are allowed in the outfield with the rest remaining in the infield. At the end of the first six overs another three players can head out into the outfield if the captain wishes.
