Indoor Cricket is the indoor short field
version of the outdoor game.
It is a much quicker game because the field
area used for the game is shorter than the
standard outside "pitch".
This game involves 6 to 8 players of all
ages and has its own unique rules. The floor
of the pitch in the indoor game is either
astro-turf or a special carpet designed for
this purpose. The ball too is different,
being a softer compound than the outdoor
Scoring too is different as from the
strikers end, there are three vertical lines
moving away from the striker called a
bat-ter. Once you hit the ball past the
first line you score one run, hit it further
past the second line two runs and so on. If
you hit the ball along the ground and it
hits the back net, then that is four runs
and on the full six runs. When you "hit a
six" you can not be caught out. You can also
make additional runs, by actually running.
The nets that surround the field help to
contain the ball in the playing field area.
We started off by having a competition for
the best name for the team. There were many
great names suggested including some I can’t
mention here, and there was a prize offered
for the best name.
