French cricket is a great outdoor activity and kids' party game. Grab your kids and friends and a bat and ball and let the game begin.
Number of players:
What you need:
- Cricket bat or tennis racket
- Tennis ball
Direct the players to stand in a circle.
Choose someone to be the first to bat.
The first batter stands in the centre of the circle.
The rest of the players try to throw the ball and hit the batter's legs below the knees. This area is known as the “stumps”.
The batter must hit the ball away for if he fails and the ball passes by, the batter cannot turn around to face another bowler.
Instead the batter must twist and turn to try to defend the stumps without moving his feet.
If the batter hits the ball and it is caught by one of the other players the batter is out.
Once out, the batter is replaced by the player who bowled him out.
