Is it okay to play cricket on concrete?

Posted by: | Comments (13)

Is it okay to play cricket on the street in front of my house? Or will that tear up the leather cricket ball and the bat? Could I replace the ball with a tennis ball, for practice on the conrete? Will this majorly effect my bowling technique?

The best way to play backyard (or street) cricket is with a tennis ball, but get some electrical tape and tape the ball up. otherwise the ball is too light, bounces too much, and doesn’t carry as far in the air as a normal cricket ball.

If you want to be able to swing the ball, tape one side heavily and only put a little on the other side. as other people have said, don’t use a leather cricket ball on the street as it will deteriorate quickly, but I wouldn’t even use it on yard grass, it doesn’t bounce enough and it’s too hard for the small space.

Taped-up tennis balls are the way to go. Best compromise you can get. As for the bat, most people have a very cheap, very thin cricket bat that they only use for backyard cricket. If you don’t, get one. They usually come with a dodgy little red tennis ball and stumps, all for about ten bucks.

Who cares if it wears on the toe? It’s disposable. using a match bat is overkill… and most players put “shoe goo” on the toe of their bats to protect against wear anyway.

How does the “cardon handle” affect cricket bats?

In gray niccols bats etc. I have heard rumours of handles snapping off. Thanks

The carbon handle is supposed to help give greater control and power. As for the handles snapping this is true. Gray Nic say that about 1 in 10 are being affected. I have one (1000 series) and two other players from my team also have them. Both of them have had the handles in their bat snap but so far so good with mineI. f it does happen GN will replace the handle for you if you return it to the place of purchase.

However you will be without your cricket bat for up to 6 weeks at the moment as it is cricket season and therefore it will take longer for them to get the time to replace the handle (they are repalced with old style ones not another carbon handle).

What do you think the best cricket bat out is? (e.g. predator max, fusion, implala redback etc) please say why and how much thx

Anything Grey Nicholls is good, I personally have the Grey Nicholls Jet, hasn’t let me down yet . But I guess it depends on your height and whether you like using heavy or light bats, but Grey Nicholls has a good range all shapes and sizes of cricket bats
