ISBA Blind Cricket Birmingham 2023

I have played ordinary cricket, and unfortunately due to another commitment, I only got to see the warm-up plus a couple of practice catches, and batting.

The main difference is the ball is a white lightweight plastic and has ball bearings that make a noise, The stumps are colour-coded black for 8 inches and if a ball hits that area the person is not out. Hit the yellow part which is the rest of the stumps then you are out. You bowl underarm, and when catching a ball one bounce is allowed. For the runs, a 2nd person runs for the blind batsperson. I also believe that if you make a single run it is counted as 2. The rest of the usual cricket rules apply.
