Match Scorecards (Cricket)

In order to enter a full match scorecard for a fixture, you will need to ensure you have added your team selection as well as the opposition’s team sheet.

For more information on adding a team selection, please click here.

Adding a match scorecard

To add a match scorecard, access your Club Control Panel and click the ‘Teams’ tab, then click your team’s name followed by ‘Fixtures & Results’ from the left-hand menu.

Locate the relevant fixture and click the ‘Match Centre’ link on the right-hand side of the page.


Select the ‘Scorecard’ tab at the top where you can add statistics for the fixture.


Complete the batting scorecard for the innings, selecting if and how the batters were dismissed and by which player from the fielding team, then enter the batters' runs, and other statistics.


The strike rate is automatically calculated from the number of balls faced by the batter and the number of runs scored.

To complete the batting scorecard, enter the number of extras scored during the innings.


Next, add in the bowling statistics for the innings. Click into the ‘Select Bowler’ drop-down and select the bowler, then enter the number of overs, maidens, runs, wickets, wides, and no balls for that bowler.


The bowler’s economy is automatically calculated from the number of runs conceded by the bowler and the number of overs bowled.

Additionally, you can add in the batting team’s fall of wickets. Enter the total number of runs scored at the fall of the wicket, specify which batter was out, which batter was not out, and enter the total number of runs scored by the not out batter.


Once completed, you can then repeat the process for the second innings.

Please Note

If your fixtures are facilitated by our official integration with ECB’s, your full match scorecard should be populated on your website, if you have entered your team selection and the opposition’s team sheet for the fixture.

If the content has been entered incorrectly in Play-Cricket, you can select to override this and replace some of the scorecard manually.

Deleting a scorecard

To delete a match scorecard, on the ‘Edit Fixture’ page simply scroll to the ‘Scorecard’ section and click the grey ‘Delete scorecard’ button on the right-hand side of the page.


Then click ‘OK’ to confirm this.

Please Note

Once deleted, the scorecard cannot be restored to your club’s website.
