Great little game from Robin Maslin. I really like how it rewards bowling skills in a tangible way, so that the fielding team are not “just” stopping the batters from scoring runs. I shall certainly be trying this out with one of our Colts squads when we move outdoors in a couple of weeks. One slight (philosophical) concern. Is there any risk that, by giving points for bowling straight, we might develop bowlers who _expect_ to be rewarded for “doing their job”? Who, if they don’t get their reward, might be dis-incentivised from carrying on?
