To become a Waverley player it is important to learn the Waverley game. This guide will teach you how to call for a single when running between the wickets and how to field on the boundary.
How to call for a single (a lesson for Webby & IV)
- Hit the ball. Simple advice maybe but this step is often overlooked when a batsman has just arrived at the crease.
- Make sure it has gone more then ten feet away. This is frequently a problem because the batsman who has called the run is normally the batsman who is in no danger of being out.
- DO NOT RUN IF THE FIELDER HAS THE BALL IN HIS HANDS
- Once you have been run out turn and walk away. Say nothing. Give the batsman who ran you out a glare that suggests he'd better not get out for a while because you will be waiting.
Note: - There are several calls for running between the wicket in cricket, yes, no, waiting, sorry mate was that your car. When playing for Waverley DO NOT CALL. If nobody says anything you can not confuse each other.
How to field on the boundary
- Chase after the ball whether you will get their or not, this is a good way to lessen the chance of getting the Pink T-shirt.
- Dive to stop the ball.
- Catch the ball while in mid-air.
- Spot cowpat in outfield.
- Drop ball in attempt to avoid cowpat
- Batsmen run six while you look for a stick to prod the ball out of the cow pat.
