The runs scored by bowling and fielding are unique to Tricket™ and are very important to reward the better bowling and fielding team. This aspect of the game makes the game possible with three teams.For the bowler to score a run he has to get the batsman out (see rules of out) and let the batsman score a minimum number of runs.For each batsman out, the bowling and fielding teams get 15 runs which are distributed according the role they played in getting the batsman out. If the batsman is bowled, leg before wicket, handle the ball, or hit their wicket, the bowler gets all 15 runs.If the batsman is caught in air then the bowler gets ten runs and the player that catches gets five runs.


If the batsman is stumped then the bowler gets ten runs and the wicket keeper gets five runs.

If the batsman gets run out then the bowler gets one run and the last two players who touch the ball after it was hit by batsman and before it hits the wickets get seven runs each. If only one player touches the ball as in case of a direct hit to the wickets by a fielder then he gets all 14 runs.

If the batsman is given out for obstructing game then the bowling and fielding teams get seven runs each.


A player frequently may be in more than one role and will get the runs for all the roles that he plays. For example, in case of caught and bowled (where bowler takes the catch also) the bowler gets 10 runs for his role as a bowler and 5 runs for his catch thus getting all 15 runs.One credit run will be awarded to the player that demonstrated the best fielding in each over. The player eligible for the run should have demonstrated a superior piece of fielding that has not resulted in the fall of the wicket. The captains of fielding teams must register the fielding act with the umpire before the start of the next delivery by showing a “thumbs up” sign or any other decided signal. Each captain can register only one act per over. The umpire decides which player demonstrated better fielding skill in the two acts that may be registered in that over. Umpires’ decisions are final and need to be given at end of each over, before the next over starts.


Two bowlers who allow the batsman to score runs the minimum runs in their over are given credit runs at the end of each teams batting. To be eligible for the credit the over has to be completed; i.e. all ten balls delivered and batsman did not score a boundary. The two bowlers who allow batsmen to score the least number of runs will be credited 10 runs. Possibly, a single bowler may receive credit runs for both overs. And if more than one bowler is eligible for the credit then the credit runs are divided equally between the bowlers and rounded off to the nearest whole number (no fraction runs).
