This challenge is to get five wickets in a formal game of cricket. That could mean any school game, league game or friendly, but it has to be in a formal setting - you know, eleven against eleven, everyone wearing whites (or one-day kit), someone scoring etc; casual games down the park with your mates don't count!

“To take one wicket is wonderful, to take five is indescribable. What made this all the better I had figures of 5/23 in 9 overs.”

Karl Q Get a five-for Challenge

Contributorsilver Karl Q After 3 for 20 in league 'warm-up' the previous week, took the matchball with 8-1-18-5. Hoping that's not the end and highlight of the season though!

Sam T Get a five-for Challenge

Sam T I have taken a five-for before, but not since circa 2001. And I haven't really played cricket since then. And I don't currently play for a team. I think this may prove to be a difficult challenge to complete...

Where are you based? If you fancy a game, I know a team that is looking for decent bowlers... (Earlsfield/Battersea area)

Male

Having completed my first net session for many years on Saturday, I think I am some way off being considered a "decent bowler"!
