CRICKET

hello, we are the essex blades cricket club


Cricket is a team sport with 11 players per side. The batting team try to score as many runs as possible and the bowling team try to restrict the number of runs they score through fielding and bowling them out. The teams then switch in the second innings and try to chase down the batting total made in the first innings.

 

How many teams do we have?

Men's Indoor team (BUCS South East)
Women's Indoor team (BUCS South East)
Men's Outdoor 1st team (BUCS South East Tier 1)
