Straight up

A test of the ability of a batsman to hit the ball straight over the bowlerís head in an area between long on and long off.

Participants

Each team will nominate two batsmen to undertake the discipline.

The event

Each batsman will be bowled ten balls at approximately 50 mph. The umpire will judge whether the balls are good enough to count in the competition.

Every hit will be marked but only a competitorís furthest qualifying hit will be measured by the umpireís assistants. This hit will be marked with the batsmanís team flag.

A qualifying hit is one that falls within the lines drawn between the stumps and long on and long off.

The Points

The furthest hit will receive six points, the second four points and so on.
