In some excellent news for Dice Cricket lovers in Australia, we are pleased to announce that the Riding Mill Cricket Club will be conducting a Virtual Tour of Australia commencing June 13.
The tour will be launched with the virtual tourists taking on the Cricket Library Podcast Invitational XI in a T10 fixture.
Games will be conducted by the Cricket Library Podcast’s host Matt Ellis who will roll the dice and record the scores posting updates on Twitter from the @CricketLibrary Handle and containing #DiceCricket
Games will be T10 Format
Each team will select 11 players
Teams nominate batting order and bowling order
Everyone bowls one over except for the nominated wicket keeper
Dice will be rolled to determine which team bats first (If an odd number, the first team listed will bat first, if an even number the team listed second will bat first)
Runs are scored according to what is rolled on the dice
If a 5 is rolled, it constitutes an appeal
Following an appeal the dice is rolled again with the following outcomes (1 = Bowled, 2 = Caught W/K, 3 = Caught, 4 = LBW, 5 = Run Out, 6 = Not Out)
If the dismissal is caught or run out, two dice will then be rolled to determine the player effecting the catch or run out.
Innings are closed if teams are bowled out or at the completion of the allotment of 10 overs
The team scoring the highest amount of runs will be declared the winner.
With all of the tour dates now confirmed, keep an eye out for team announcements in the coming weeks.
