How to play cricket alone?

Posted by: | Comments (4)

How can I learn to play cricket alone?

Hey all. I’m an American learning to play cricket for a team this summer. My question is: How can I learn the game, or at least practice the fundamentals alone with minimal access to equipment. I can probably find a bat somewhere, but what drills can I do to improve myself as a player? Thanks, J.P.

Cricket is a team sport played between two teams of 11 players. Each team has its own captain, multiple batsmen, multiple bowlers and other players acting as fielders. It is a bat-and-ball game played on a roughly elliptical grass field, in the centre of which is a flat strip, called a pitch.

Steps

1. Choose the batsman and bowler. A team consists of eleven players. Depending on his or her skills, a player may be selected as batsman or bowler.

2. Choose the wicket keeper. Teams nearly always include a specialist wicket-keeper because of the importance of this fielding position. A wicketkeeper is almost equivalent to a catcher in baseball without the fingering signals.

3. Choose the umpire. Two on-field umpires preside over a match. One umpire will stand behind the wicket at the end from which the ball is bowled, and adjudicate on most decisions. The other will stand near the fielding position called “square leg”, which offers a side view of the batsman, and assist on decisions for which he has a better view. When you choose the umpire, he or she should come from the players, who will be resting or waiting for his or her number to come and play. But try to select the person who knows the basic rules from all 42 Laws of Cricket.

4. Choose your match type. There are 3 types of matches: * ODI (One-Day International); and * Test Match The most common one is ODI, because in this type of match, each team has to play 50 overs (6 Balls per over) and it is played for one-day only. Read more about test matches by clicking here. * Twenty/20 matches are the same as ODI’s but only contain 20 overs

5. Choose which team plays what. Selecting which team will play what (batting/bowling-fielding), is decided by making a coin toss between the captains of the two teams. The captain who wins decides which play to take whether batting or bowling-fielding.

6. Start playing!

Tips * Try to learn some of the main rules, which will prevent you from being “out”.

* Read all the rules first throughout the link provided in “External Links”, and then play, because this article hasn’t explained about “runs” etc; to do this would make the article too long. This article is just an explanation of the procedure before starting playing the game. Warnings * Do not cheat in this game, for example, you have been selected as the umpire, so don’t be showing favor for the opposing team only. Play fair and fair play!

Things You’ll Need

* A stadium or a large ground; the local oval is fine

* A wicket

* Bats

* Balls

* Umpires who knows the basic laws of cricket

* Protection equipment known as cricket kit, which contains helmet, elbow guard, leg pad, gloves, abdomen guard. Hope it helps.

Good Luck!! ):-)

What is power play in Cricket and how it use during the play?

Power Play are using in Cricket ODI what is this and what is the purpose of this power play during the match and how could the captain obtain this power play?

Powerplay maens the fielding restrictions which allow the batsmen to score more runs easily. Fielding restriction means that only 2 players are allowed to field outside the 30 yard circle. Earlier, there was a fielding restriction of 30% of overs of one innings. In a 50 overs match, the fielding restriction was of 15 overs.

Similarly, if a match was reduced to 20 overs, then the fielding restriction was for 6 overs. But nowadays, the restrictions are divided into three parts known as powerplays. The first ten overs are the first powerplay. Then the other two powerplays are of 5 overs each and the fielding captain decides when he wants to have it.

I saw the South African and England one dy players practice like this. The batsman stands opposite a net, and the feeder throws balls underarm between ankle and shin height to simulate a half volley or full toss. The batsman hits the ball back into the net.

I’d like to watch or play cricket near London. What is the best way?

I’m trippng to London in July. Although I don’t know much about cricket, I’d like to watch it at least.

Is cricket really popular in the UK? Can I watch it easily in the park or somewhere? And I wonder if women usually play cricket.

I suggest you contact Lords Cricket Ground or the Oval. Whether cricket is popular seems to depend upon how well England are beating Australia!!!

Women do play cricket but it is not usual. However we do have county sides as well as a national side. for some details, contact www.lords.org or contact:

Marylebone Cricket Club

Lord’s Cricket Ground

St John’s Wood

London NW8 8QN

General switchboard: 020 7616 8500

They will be very helpful!  Cricket can be both fun and boring, so watch out! Someone said it’s a little like fishing – nothing can happen for ages then there is activity. I like watching cricket but do not play Enjoy!

Is there a rule that only those countries which were ruled by Britain before or have some British connection can play cricket? Could this be the reason why there aren’t so many countries playing cricket?

Not at all. There is no bar for any country to play cricket.
