“WATCH IT AND WHACK IT!” This is one of our most popular badges - it’s for batting! It’s such a nice feeling when you hit a great shot - so make sure you watch the ball, give the bat a swing and make good contact. If you can do this, you’ll soon be scoring lots of runs!

WATCH WITH TWINKLE

Good batters can score runs quickly by hitting fours and sixes. They do this by hitting the ball over the boundary line around the pitch. Look here for some amazing shots!


ICC CRICKET WORLD CUP FACTS The record for the highest amount of runs scored by a batter in the ICC Cricket World Cup is held by Martin Guptil from New Zealand, who scored 237 not out against the West Indies in 2015.

WATCH WITH TWINKLE

The England players have to train very hard to make sure that they can run quickly during their matches. Watch them in action!

Eoin Morgan

Adil Rashid

Liam Plunkett

Jos Buttler

Jason Roy

CAPTAIN - TOP FACT

Eoin is the captain of the England One Day International (ODI) Team, who will be playing in the ICC Cricket World Cup. Eoin is a brilliant leader – he is very confident and is also an amazing batter. He holds the record for scoring the most runs in the England ODI team, with a total of just under 6000!

LEG SPINNER - TOP FACT

Adil is a bowler who doesn’t rely on speed. He bowls slower, but with lots of spin and skill! Since the last ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015, Adil has got more opponents out than any other bowler for England, so he could be one of the most dangerous players this summer!

BOWLER - TOP FACT

Liam can hit some big shots with the bat, but he is better known as being a fast bowler. His top recorded bowling speed is over 94 miles per hour. That’s faster than cars are allowed to drive on a motorway!

WICKET KEEPER - TOP FACT

Jos is the England wicket keeper (the fielding position behind the stumps) in the ODI team but he is also a superstar batter. He loves hitting massive sixes and lots of unusual shots in all directions. He whacks the ball very hard – recorded at 143 miles per hour off the bat. Wow!

BATTER - TOP FACT

Jason opens the batting for England – that means that he is our first batter and he looks to score runs very quickly. Last year, he became the highest ever scorer for England in an one day innings with a total of 180 runs off 151 balls. Amazing!

Kagiso Rabada – South Africa -

Bowler

What a talent! Kagiso Rabada is a fast bowler who won’t let anything get in his way. He has performed brilliantly for South Africa and is likely to be one of the stars of the 2019 tournament. Definitely one to look out for.

Babar Azam - Pakistan - Batter

Babar Azam is a skilful batter who loves scoring runs. In 2016, he scored 100 runs in three consecut ive matches which is very, very difficult. He is one of the best batt ers in the world so look out for him scoring another 100 in the CWC 19. Another cool fact about Baba r is that three of his cousins have played for Pakistan as well – what a talented family!

Shakib Al Hasan – Bangladesh -

All Rounder

Shakib Al Hasan is arguably the most famous cricket player to com e from Bangladesh. He is known as being an ‘all-rounder’, meaning that he is a brilliant batter and also a brilliant bowler. As a bowler, he is slow, calm and accurate, and as a batter he is aggressive and play s lots of different shots.

Lasith Malinga - Sri Lanka - Bow

ler

At 35 years of age, Lasith Malinga will be hoping to stay injury free to play in his 4th ICC Cricket World Cup. He was one of the greatest fast bowlers of his generation, and altho ugh he’s not as quick as he used to be, he’s still likely to be a dang er to all batters. Watch out for him kissing the ball before he bowls with his very unusual style.

Shai Hope - Windies - Batter

Born in Barbados, an island in the Caribbean, Shai Hope is one of the star players in the Windies team . He is ranked in the top ten batt ers in the world, and he can also play as a wicket keeper if needed. Look out to see if he can hit some big sixes !


WEEK 5

K R O W M A TE Your badge goes here

In All Stars Cricket, we are one big team, so this week’s badge is for Teamwork. In cricket, players have to work with each other to help be the best that they can be. Batters

run together and bowlers rely on their team mates to catch the ball. Being part of a team is brilliant as you get to have fun and celebrate with all of your friends.

WATCH WITH TWINKLE

Teamwork makes the dreamwork! Being part of a team is one of the best feelings in sport. Working with your friends to achieve your goals, and then celebrating together is awesome.

WATCH WITH TWINKLE

Some bowlers have a really long run up and bowl really fast. Others bowl slower but spin the ball to trick the batter. Either way, when they knock the stumps over, they absolutely love it! Have a look here to see them in action.
