Last man stands cricket

20-over form of cricket played with a pink ball with only 8 players per side, originating in England in 2005, in which if a team loses 7 wickets in an innings, the remaining batsman continues to bat without a partner, instead of being stranded

Last man stands cricket (LMS) is a form of cricket in which a single batter can bat alone if all other players on his team are out. It has innings with 20 overs of 5 balls each, like in 100-ball cricket.

Rules change

When a single batter bats alone (is the "last man standing"), they can only be safe when in the ground at the striker's end, which is the area they start running from.[1]
