    Icon3 A different game of exciting cricket (No bat, no ball, only hands!)

    Hi!
    I am new to this forum and I like to introduce to everyone here a new type of cricket game I play many times with hands. Some might have heard about this but many don't know about playing cricket just with hands.
    Here is the method to play:
    (x) You need a healthy hand and some friends to play.Here I will explain about a match between two players.
    (x) First, the players have to toss a coin and the toss winner should decide whether to bat or bowl.
    (x)Then, Both the players should use a single hand and show a number using their fingers, both at the same moment.
    [ show one finger for one run
    2 fing - 2 runs
    3 fing - 3 runs
    4 fing four runs
    5 fing. - 5 runs
    thumb finger - 6 runs ]
    (x)If both the players show the same number of runs using their hands, the batting person is declared out.
    (x)If both of them show different numbers, then the runs are counted for the batsman.
    (x)This continues until the batsman loses three(or four or five) wickets or the number of overs is finished.(eg, keep 5 overs)
    (x) Then the person who bowled early will bat. If the batter loses all his wickets before reaching the target, the person who batted earlier wins. If he reaches the target, the second person wins!
    If you have doubts regarding it, post it.
    Hope everyone enjoys playing it

    So what you're saying is that you like batting with your hand?

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    What exactly is a thumb finger?

    How is that different to the fifth finger?

    For five runs, you don't have to show the fifth finger, you should show all the five fingers.
    For six, you should show only the thumb.

    Yes, of course. (But, only when I am not in the ground!)

    As I'm a little more discreet, I prefer the turn to fine leg.

    That's right, it needs to be up and straight and then I'm happy to spank it to all parts.

    In order to not make a mess of the wicket, I hope you're wearing your rubbers, not spikes.

    I've picked up a sponsorship from a new player in the game - Kleenex. They're soft on the skin and absorb any excess moisture in the wicket. The head designer is a master gloveman himself, so they're particularly good when you're standing up over the stumps and you need to make a clean snaffle.

    Always handy, especially when you need to quickly whip the bails off.

    The webbing between the fingers offers a bit more ball security too.

    Undoubtedly. Are you also of the belief that a good, powerful wrist cock is the key to blowing away the opposition?
