How hard is it to learn to play cricket?

Posted by: | Comments (22)

I’ve played a little baseball, but never a real cricket game, but I’m thinking of starting a club at my school, do u think this is a good idea?

I played Cricket (in Japan of all places). It is a totally fun game and one that has been played for a very long time.

To get a really great overview go to the following link.

Plus, I can guarantee that you will get a lot of attention while playing and that is never bad.

Where can I learn to play cricket?

Posted by: | Comments (8)

I live in Chicago (West Loop) and I would really like to learn to play cricket. Does anyone know where I could do this? I know there are a lot of teams in the area, but they all seem pretty well established with players that know what they’re doing, I’m starting from the very beginning here… I don’t even know the equipment or terminology, I just saw it on tv and it looks like something I’d like to try.

Thanks,

Well firstly if your over 18 you can play in the seniors. Usually they start with 1st Grade which is made up of good players but it goes all the way down to 5th or 6th grade. They are grades which old people, fathers and sons and people that just play for fun or just started can play.

But firstly I would recommend you to go down to the park, grab something that is shaped like a cricket bat ( in the americans’ case a baseball bat ) and get three sticks in the ground, all about knee-height, and get someone to throw balls at you. To start don’t follow through.

If you start to like it, you can get the necessary gear (pads, bat, box, gloves, helmet, spikes (if playing on turf), and maybe thigh guard.

It is a game of great fun.

Can anybody tell me how to play cricket ?

Posted by: | Comments (5)

I’m living in Saudi Arabia, and in my city there is a lot of Indian people, they always playing cricket in the street, it makes me happy when I’m watching there are playing.

I want to know how they play cricket (the rules and scoring), because i wanna play with them.

Well there is two teams 11 men on each team but this can vary when being played at home, one side bats and one side fields, the batting team must score as many runs as possible, runs are made by running from crease to crease on (a line in the ground around half a meter in front of the stumps) how runs are made is by the fielding team member throwing the ball from one end of the pitch at the batter at the other end the batter tries to either block the ball from hitting the stumps or can smash it in any direction he feels like, the fielding teams goal is to catch or nock the stumps of the batting teams players until all batters are delared out( there are two batters on the pitch at one time both can be caught out or stumped) the stumps are the three sticks with another two sticks sitting on top of the three sticks.

Batters can also be run out as they try to score runs the way that happens is if one of the fielders grabs the ball after it has been hit and either throws it at the stumps or knocks the stumps if the batter who is running in the direction of the stumps that have just been knocked and he doesn’t make it to the crease (line) before the stumps are knocked then he is out fielders must cooperate with great concentration to achieve a run out.

After the batting team is all out then it’s the fielding teams turn to bat and the batting teams turn to field the batting team must now try to get more runs than the previose team to win if they are all bowled out, caught out or run out before they can score more runs than the opponets teams run score than than they have lost.
Another way for a teams to swap is when the overs are all depleted, which is when all bowlers have used up there bowls.

Bowlers: each fielder gets 2 overs each, an over is made up of 6 bowls.

That’s all I know sorry if it is confusing.
Hope you enjoy the world of playing the wonderful game of cricket.

Where can I play cricket when I have no pitch?

My friend recently got me started on cricket, but we can’t exactly find any official cricket pitch near here to play an actual game. I live in a small town in Wisconsin, and he suggested a baseball field, a soccer field, or just some empty lot somewhere.

There are plenty of baseball and soccer fields around here. The problem is, people are very protective about their property around here and I don’t know if we’d be able to use any of them.

Any suggestions?

If you live in Wisconsin, there is club which plays year round cricket. Indoor in winter and outdoor in summer. Summer season starts this weekend, wanna enroll go to Milwaukee Cricket or let me know i am a member for last 4 year and it is fun all year around.

I used to play baseball at a very high level, and I have excellent hand-eye coordination. I also have a very strong throwing arm and good speed. I would love to try playing cricket. I was wondering if anyone knew about leagues in the united state that were available to play in. I live in Michigan, and i would travel to Ontario if i had to.

There’s a group called CricketUSA that is just what you’re looking for!
