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.

Does anyone know where a 13 year old boy can play cricket for a team if this particular boy lived in central NJ?

Please, I really want to know.

Ok, this is simple, New Jersey happens to be the Armpit of America, which is where the most Indians live (and cricket is a big indian sport), so you go to Jersey City, where a lot of Indians live, walk up to any middle aged Indian, and ask him where do the Indians play their cricket, and he will tell you, then you go to anywhere it is, and play ball.

I wanna play cricket and I wanna be a good fats bowler and I’m 5’2 so what should I do to become a good fast bowler?

First, you need to gain some fitness (there is NO fast bowler in the world, that is not fit)
Secondly you need to watch videos of fast bowlers, and study how they bowl and what line and length they bowl
Next is actually bowling, you can’t expect yourself to be good straight away, practice !!!, and also find a action that doesn’t put stress on your mucles
Lastly join a local cricket club, and get some match practice !!!!

(with your height, you may be able to skid the ball more, so you could be a very good bowler)
