- Cricket involves hitting the following targets on the dartboard at least three times: 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, and Bull. A triple counts as three hits, a double counts as two, all other areas in that target are counted as one hit. Also, the double bull counts as two hits.
- Each player shall take turns in throwing (Three darts in succession shall constitutes a 'turn'/'Inning'). Once a player closes an inning, he may score points on that number until the opponent also closes that inning. All numerical scores shall be added to the previous balance.
- Numbers can be 'owned' or 'closed' in any order desired by the individual player. Calling your shot is not required. There will be a point cap set at 200 points. Once a player has reached this amount of points, no more points can be scored. In the event that they reach 200 points, they must close all numbers to win the game.
- Once a player has hit a target three times it is considered closed. When a target is closed, the opposition can no longer score on it but the person with the closed number can score on it as long as his opposition does not have theirs closed.
- Triples and doubles are scored accordingly (i.e., a triple 20 counts as 60 points, a double 18 counts as 36 points). The single bull is worth 25 points and the double bull equals 50 points
- The winner of the game is the person that has closed all of their numbers with as many or more points than the opposition.
- If someone closes all their targets first, but has the least amount of points, they will have to continue to score on those targets until he/she has caught up in points (they win the game once they have either equaled or surpassed their opponent's points).
- If both sides are tied on points, or have no points, the first player to close all innings shall be the winner.
- This is regular cricket, not cut-throat cricket. You are not pointing the other team, the points go on your score.
Note: It shall be the responsibility of the player to verify his score before removing his darts from the board. The score remains as written if one or more darts has been removed from the board. In accordance with the inherent "strategy" involved in the Cricket game, no alterations in score shall be allowed, after the fact.
