The game that will literally bowl you over
What is Cardiff Turbo Cricket? It's a new kind of cricket that has a few tricks up its sleeve. About 10 times faster than your standard match, it's 60 minutes from start to finish. It's perfect for a stag weekend, when you don't have a lot of time to spare but want to get some sport in. The guys running your event are pros. They handle all the organisational stuff, explain rules, hand out the bibs, sort the games and keep score. All of which leaves you free to concentrate on the fun stuff. Like bowling, batting, and ganging up on the stag.
About those tricks we mentioned earlierâ¦
Cardiff Turbo Cricket has a bunch of 'em. You could be losing one minute and winning the next. Especially when the turbo overs kick in. It all goes crazy at double runs time. If you smash a 6 you'll get 10 runs for your team. Jokers will be played. Forfeits too. Good batsman? Fill your boots. If you're caught out it's not over. You can make as many comebacks as you like. Retiring at 20 is important, though. There's a big penalty for those who don't.
Cricket doesn't usually rhyme with fun. It's a slow, plodding kind of sport. Turbo Cricket is a different story. If you want a faster, tighter and funnier game than usual, check it out.
