Excerpt from the book Sports the Olympics Forgot This book describes 40 sports that ought to be played but aren’t, because I made them up.

=========

If a bowl knocks off one or both of the bails on the stumps then the Umpire shouts ‘Bocket’ and the team whose bowler knocked off the bail are deducted two points instantly, the wicket is repaired, and the game continues.

Each team bowls 8 bowls at one end of the pitch and then the game commences at the other end of the pitch with a further 8 bowls per team being delivered towards the other set of stumps. In a full game of Bocket both teams bowl from each end of the pitch 5 times.
