LMS Blows new life into cricket
Last Man Stands (LMS) is a fast spreading amateur form of twenty20 cricket played by eight-person teams.
Globally, there are about 1000 teams and around 20,000 players from six different countries taking part in leagues that were started in England in 2005.
The game has proved popular among cricketers due to its fast-paced two-hour matches instead of the long Saturday cricket games, and the fact that all players and teams are ranked against each other.
The leagues are targeted at people who do not have time to play club cricket, says New Zealand LMS director Ross Cawood.
