Cricket is a popular sport played during the summer season, during Term 1 and Term 4. Magill cricket teams participate in the Kensington Primary School Cricket Competition. Matches are played against schools in the North Eastern region and the competition is administrated by the SACA. School cricket is played between two teams. One team will elect to bat, the other team fields and bowls. The batting team aims to score as many ‘runs’ as possible by batting in pairs or partnership. The aim of the fielding side is to get the batters ‘out’ by taking ‘wickets’ or restricting the number of runs scored. Once the ‘innings’ is completed the teams switch between batting and bowling. The innings is completed when the batting team is all ‘out’ or all ‘overs’ have been bowled. Parents can help out in the following ways: Coaching / Management / Scoring
