PLAY - Last Batter Stands

LEARN - Junior Journalist

PLAY - Last Batter Stands

This is a simple batting game which focuses on batting skills and can be set up at home with very little equipment. 

The aim of Last Batter Stands is to last as many balls as possible before losing your wicket. Think Jack Leach at  Headingley, Monty Panesar and James Anderson in Cardiff in the 2009 Ashes or Bell, Prior and Graham Onions mammoth efforts in Cape Town in 2010.

We've got another England great in Ashes-winning skipper Michael Vaughan to show you how to take on this challenge that will test your concentration and resilience.

Learn - Junior Journalist

The Cricket World Cup Final 2019 was one of the most exciting games of cricket ever played. The match at Lord’s was a thriller that ended in Eoin Morgan’s England side winning their first ever World Cup trophy.

Today’s literacy lesson is to write a newspaper report of the game, imagining it is the morning after the final. Check out the session plan for adaptations for KS1, KS2 and KS3.

We've also got some top tips from our friends who write for some of the biggest websites and newspapers in the country!
