They wouldn't like it at Lord's!
When you're so close to one of the most famous and best-loved cricket grounds in the world â Lord's is in London's St John's Wood â then you really have to step up to the crease and give it your best shot. Reading Turbo Cricket is the rebel of the sport. Twenty/20 might be a short form of cricket with a single innings per team but the average match still lasts 3 hours. You'll have yours done and dusted in one hour. It's the perfect length of time for a stag party activity.
Put a spin on it
That's basically what this is about: putting a fast spin on a much-loved classic sport. Those who think cricket is boring will eat their words five minutes into a game of Reading Turbo Cricket. They've slashed match time but kept all the really good and interesting bits in. The point is still to have the highest number of runs. You've still got batsman, bowler and fielders. Wickets haven't been messed with. Teams have though. This is a 6-a-side match on a pitch that's a fraction of competition size.
A few new elements have been added to raise the stakes and keep the action coming. A batsman can bat umpteen times. There isn't a dedicated bowler, every man on the field has a go. There are a few turbo overs. You might not get to know when they'll happen but when they're announced, every run you get will be doubled.Here's the best bit: we sort it, the instructors run it, you just go out on the field and give it 100% like Dhoni.
In a nutshell:
