Box Cricket Rules
Each team shall comprise of six players.
The match shall be six overs an inning and only one inning each.
Approximate time per match is 45 minutes.
Sports shoes with rubber soles are a must. No studs or spikes are allowed.
The ball used in indoor cricket is a modified yellow cricket ball, with a softer center. Soft or heavy tennis/cricket balls may also be used.
Traditional outdoor cricket bats or more specialized lighter-weight indoor cricket bats may be used.
It is suggested that all protective gear such as pads, helmet, gloves, guards etc. are used while playing.
Each player must compulsorily bowl one over.
A team will have to bat the full quota of six over even if they over haul opponent’s score.
The opening batting pair shall bat for the first two over. The opening pair will have to be replaced by the next pair at the end of first two over.
The side netting has a one bonus run zone which covers the area between the batting crease and halfway line, and another two bonus runs zone which continues from the halfway line to the corner of the playing area. The front netting is a four bonus runs zone if hit after the bounce, and six bonus runs zone when the ball hits it on the full. The bonus runs are added with the score made by running between the wickets.
No bonus run will be awarded if the ball hits the roof netting.
A catch off any net is declared out and three runs is deducted from the batting side. The batsman however continues to bat. This rule however does not apply for a catch off the front net when a six is hit.
Running between the wickets takes place from the batting crease to the half-way point on the pitch. The runners crease is marked at the halfway point and the runner stand at the crease. All complete runs will therefore mean a player runs only half the pitch.
To run a batsman out at the bowler’s end, the wicket at the bowler’s end will have to be struck before the batsman reaches the half way runner’s crease.
No LBW rules apply.
A dismissal will mean deduction of three runs but the batsman continues to bat.
A maximum of 3 players, inclusive of the bowler, shall be allowed beyond the two bonus runs zone.
