CRICKET

hello, we are the essex blades cricket club


Cricket is a team sport with 11 players per side with two innings per game. In the first innings 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. If the batting team scores more runs they win but if the bowling team stop them from achieving this they win.
 

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)
Men's Outdoor 2nd team (BUCS South East Tier 2)
Women's Outdoor 1st team (BUCS South East Tier 1)

Do I need anything else before I get involved?

Club kit is provided at training but for games it is recommended to have own batting equipment: whites, helmet, pads, box, gloves and bat.
