    Icon5 Indoor Cricket

    I want to know about Indoor Cricket.
    I asked about Indoor Cricket to an Australian coach. He answered that his team play Indoor Cricket in winter as training, and do not join official competitions.
    Could you tell me about the difference between Indoor Cricket and normal Cricket on turf?

    Indoor cricket is simply crap.
    At least here without indoor cricket dedicated facilities.

    I have many questions.
    In normal Cricket, there are 4s and 6s. However, the playing area is smaller in Indoor Cricket. So, is the value of boundary (4s or 6s in normal Cricket) same?
    When I saw an Indoor Cricket game on YouTube, 1 over was 8 balls. Is that normal in Indoor Cricket? If so, what is the reason? (In the Laws of Cricket, 1 over can be both 6 and 8 balls.)
    How large is the playing area? And how many players does a team have?

    The Wikipedia link answers all your questions I think.

    Overs in Indoor Cricket are 6 balls, but no balls/wides mean an extra ball will be bowled.

    Nah, proper indoor cricket is 8 ball overs and wides are not re-bowled unless it's the last over of the skin where the batting team has the option of making the bowlers re-bowl it or not (saves the bowling team bowling 8 wides to save the skin).

    Sundries are also worth 2 runs instead of 1.

    I believe the governing body is also introducing into the World Cup the mandatory pizza tray attached to the back wall where if you hit it you get a six pack.

    I used to umpire Indoor a long time ago. I'm certain that overs were 8 balls.

    You are correct as is benchmark00

    On the topic of indoor. I cannot bowl an indoor cricket ball. It feels too light in my hand and the ball is either a beamer or a triple bouncer no ball.

    Which is a shame as I could probably bowl an indoor ball about 110ks which would be a challenge for the 60 year olds I come up against in the beginners division I am in.

    Yeh, you're right. I forgot about the 2 run thing for no ball/wides and the extra ball available in the last over.

    I haven't played for about 4 years, but I did fill in maybe a year ago and I'd noticed some rules had changed with stuff like super-overs (double run/penalties) etc.

    I swear we used to have 6 ball overs when I played. But I'm probably wrong there too!

    They've started to bring in t20 style rules to indoor cricket to jazz it up a little, but the proper stuff is still 8 a side, 8 ball overs like it always has.

    I remember on ABC back on the day they used to show the state league. Bruce Reid used to turn out for WA.

    This was ****ing with my head so much I just called the indoor centre I used to play at. They have 6 ball overs there.

    Might not be the standard, but I knew I wasn't that mental!

    In the indoor league I play in South Africa we play six ball overs.
