Where can I learn to play cricket?

By

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,
El
what’s a mohalla?

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.

Ok. I would recommend you to go and play for a club. No matter how bad you are, you can always learn. Cricket isn’t an easy sport to play, but it is very fun. Everyone is involved in the game at any one time so you will be left out.

You should get in contact with usaca-The United States of America Cricket Association and ask them about any coaching programmes in you area they’ll give you all the information you need. I have given you their official website.
Mohalla or Mahalla is a term to describe a neighborhood or locality in the cities and towns of Central and South Asia.
