Last Man Stands (LMS) is a 2 hour, 8-a-side, T20 cricket game for all abilities. Played in cricket grounds globally, in our distinctive coloured kits, LMS is the world’s largest and widest-reaching amateur cricket league.
Founded in 2005 in London, by Bjorn Briggs & Waybe Greve, with operations now throughout the world, we are proud to deliver LMS leagues for over 180,000 players.
The rules are innovative and designed to ensure the game is fast-paced and exciting. Last Man Stands was named after the Founders’ favourite rule! LMS aims to attract a new audience to the game – the Double Play and Steal rules narrow the gap between baseball and cricket. Although the games only last 2 hours, all eight players are promised maximum participation and a good workout.
We aim to give a professional experience to amateur players of all abilities. We also aim to take the pain out of social sport for team organisers – we organise the umpires, balls, pitches, and scoring. Then, all teams have to do is turn up!

In 2021 AB De Villiers, probably the most innovative and exciting batsman of the modern game, including in the Indian Premier League where he now plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), joined our team as Global Ambassador. Former South African Test Captain de Villiers has scooped ICC ODI Player of the Year 3 times during his illustrious international career.
We play all year round at Marks Park Sports Club on the top oval and during the winter season on the middle oval.
