HOW TO SCORE
Latrobe Cricket Club expects that all players learn how to score the game of cricket by filling in scoresheets neatly and accurately. Scoring is a skill that can be learned relatively quickly and is an important part of being a valued team member.
It is expected that everyone in the Under-13, Under-15, Under-17, and 2nd Grade teams learns/knows how to score and does a minimum stint of 5-10 overs during their team’s batting innings.
In 1st Grade matches are scored by a full-time scorer using Total Cricket Scorer software on the club’s laptop.
For parents, siblings and community members, scoring is another way you can contribute to the club and share your enjoyment of cricket with others.
The best way to learn how to score is to sit beside a person who is experienced in scoring cricket and watch what they do throughout an innings. The next step is for you to score the next innings under their supervision. You can learn how to score in one day!
Latrobe Cricket Club hopes to put together a video tutorial on scoring once the scorebooks have arrived for this season. Until then, take a look at some of the resources below, which should help clarify how cricket is scored:
The Art of Scoring Cricket
Cricket Victoria Scoring Manual
Queensland Cricket Scoring Manual
