I play street cricket a lot, is juts really fun, we use a chair or a box, chalk, taped (insulating tape) tennis ball (or not taped) and easy wood made bats (kind of big)…i’m from Bolivia where the cricket isn’t even a minor sport but i know the game from a friend who used to have a pakistani friend…kind of weird, i will love to share street cricket experiences whit people from arround the world, i even translate a Cricket for beginners guide into spanish because i love the street cricket.
A few of us here are fanatical about street cricket. We have a couple of Grounds..MCG and currently Sabina Park which is actually the local primary school playground. We have our own web site under construction nd will be filming some action soon. Can anyone tell me about the swingking (or a similar product). Apparantly it immitates a tape-ball. We cant use tape-ball since the concrete rips it off after 5 overs!
I still play street cricket in Australia. Just a bat, a tennis ball, a rubbish bin (oops trash can) and a dozen or so people from the neighbourhood. We even had an American kid join us. He didn’t really get the hang of bowling but he loved the game anyway.
Just to let know that our tour to Florida is all set to leave New York on Dec. 10 and return Dec. 13th. I will inform you later on players and teams etc. later. Please call me at 212-760-8617. Thank you very much in advance. Jit Singh
