    Bedroom cricket

    Prerequisites;- 1 bedroom (of course)
    2 individuals (1 batter , 1 bowler)
    1 sheet of newspaper rolled into a ball and kept together with tape

    THer are no fielders as we are in a confined space. There are no stumps .An important thing to remember is that the only scoring shot is a six (so you have to go over the top always 0. You use your palm as the bat.

    So how does a batsman get out?
    Here is the trick;- The walls of the room ,including the ceiling are divided into sections or parishes or states very similar to that of a geographical map. Certain sections are then designated as "get out areas" If the batsman strikes the ball and it hits one of these get out areas , he's out.

    An innings last 2 overs (12 balls)

    Your aim as a batsman is to score as many runs as you can as quickly as you can in 12 balls without hitting any of the get out areas.

    NB:- One can also be out caught by the bowler who as you will remember is the only other person playing. This usually happens by sheer accident though


    Since the areas on the wall are to be no bigger than 1 foot square it is sheer joy trying to miss those get out areas

    Have fun playing

    Believe me guys , this bedroom cricket thing is not something I made up just to have something to talk about.
    It all started when i was about 8 years old. At that time I had a cousin who was only 2 months older than I was . Unfortunately we could only see each other on Saturdays and Sundays when we spent alternate weekends at each other's house. And since we both loved cricket as much as we did,we just conceptualised the bebroom cricket as we had a curfew at 8pm. As youngsters still full of energy even after playing outdoors for much of the day, we could not get enough of the game called cricket

    Please note that I have loved cricket all my life. My dear departed dad gave me my first miniature cricket set when I was only 4 years old. I have played competitive cricket from 9 years old for my prep school. I have reached 1st division level in my career . At 44 years of age now I am quite contented in the 2nd division for my club Dover. At this level I can still play competitively, but I am allowed to enjoy a beer or two during the game, and a case or two after

    I can imagine that many an international star has developed through study of the subtle art that is bedroom cricket.

    Probably everyone who is an addict of cricket has played a variation of this game at some time. My favorite tools are a ruler and a bouncy ball, but to each his own.

    when we play cricket in the house we use a super soft ball about the size of a tennis ball and a signature bat

    I used to play hallway cricket with a signature bat and a table tennis ball. We used a shoe box for stumps.
