3. When a girl is batting, the inner circle on the field becomes the boundary and if it crosses the inner circle without the ball pitching inside the circle then it is declared as SIX runs but if it pitches inside the field and then crosses the boundary then it is declared 4 runs.
4. The dimensions of the inner circle will be decided by the umpires and committee members.
5. Unless it's the turn of the batsman to come into the field, no player/s from the batting team should enter the field while play is in progress (Incase refreshments need to be carried to the batsmen, only 1 player from the batting team is allowed to enter the field that too upon the umpire's consent).

10. One batsman can play a maximum of 12 legitimate balls (Noballs, Wides and Dead balls are NOT legitimate balls). After that, he/she has to retire even if not-out. If a team is on the verge of getting all-out only then that batsman can come back to rescue his/her team.
