Even in "proper" cricket it is important to rotate the strike so the bowlers don't get too settled . Assuming 4 slips a bowler and a wicket-keeper, man at long leg , there must be gaps somewhere to push an odd single without risking losing his wicket ..
Perhaps it is just me but 6 single 101 balls seems suprisingly few . Whilst acknowledging off course it is good he is still there .
