Cricket is also making family to play
Cricket has been an established team sport for hundreds of years and is one of the most popular sports in the world. It originated in England and is now very popular in countries such as India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, the West Indies and South Africa.
Competitive cricket is essentially a bat and ball sport. It is played by two teams on an oval and involves batting, fielding and bowling. There are 11 players a side and a game can last anywhere from several hours to several days.
Cricket can be played both socially and competitively, by males and females of all ages. While competitive cricket is mostly played on a field, cricket just for fun can be played in backyards, parks, streets or on the beach. You only need a couple of friends, a bat, a ball and something that represents wickets. To play competitively, consider joining a local club.
Cricket might not look like a very active game at first, but there’s a lot of exercise involved. Whether you’re a fielder, bowler, or batsman, you can expect to do a lot of running. Bowling and batting also help to build upper body strength.
When you’re learning to play cricket from a young age, you’re learning more than just how to play the game.
The sport is a great way for kids to build resilience, because there’s lots of practice involved. And even if your kids’ cricket club loses a match, that camaraderie will put them back in good spirits and see them back on the pitch again for the next game.
Kids Need Role Models
As kids are still developing, they need as many positive role models in their lives as possible. Cricket coaches are exactly that; teaching young sportsmen and sportswomen important life skills like restraint, courage, and dignity.
