What are the latest rules of cricket

Cricket rules for children

Cricket is a sport played all over the world, with leagues from Europe to Asia to Australia and New Zealand. It has developed and persisted in its present form for centuries. Cricket is a fun pastime for people of all ages - especially children, whose relatively simple rules and concepts are ideal for introducing children to competitive athletes and teamwork.

About traditional cricket

Traditionally, cricket is played between two teams of eleven players each. The game usually lasts more than two innings, which can last for days. During each innings, the batsman's goal is to get runs while the field team's goal is to get the batmen out. Once every Batman on the batting team is rolled out, the teams switch sides. Traditional cricket can get boring for children as there is a lot of waiting time between hits at the bat. The traditional cricket bat and ball are also heavy, heavy, and potentially dangerous for young children. For this reason, two variants have been developed to introduce cricket for children.

Rules for Kwik Cricket

Kwik Cricket is aimed at children between the ages of five and eleven. Played with a plastic bat rather than traditional cricket equipment, it is designed to introduce children to cricket and teach them basic skills. The players are divided into two teams of eight players each. Each team is then divided into four pairs. Bowlers should be encouraged to roll over the arm if they are able, but if not, they can roll under the arm. (Ref. 2)

Kwik cricket scoring

Each member of the fielding team hands out a bowl. At the start of the game, each team starts with 200 runs and each time the batsman is dealt, five runs are deducted from the batting team. This happens when the dough is beaten, caught, clogged, runs out, or hits its own goal. If the bowler throws a wide ball or no ball, the wound is given two extra runs. Batsmen can also score runs following traditional cricket rules by running to the end of the pitch or bumping into limits. (Ref. 1) Except for the wicketkeeper, no outfield player may be within 10 meters of the basman during the game. (Ref. 2).

Rules for inter cricket

Inter Cricket is an intermediate version for 12 to 14 year olds that transfers older children to the traditional form of sport. The game is played with a soft ball and a traditional cricket bat and can be played indoors or outdoors. Inter cricket is played on a smaller scale with a smaller pitch, shorter running distances and smaller team sizes. Runs are scored by hitting the ball against a wall and a free hit is awarded after a long or no ball. (Ref. 3).
