Whether you are playing cricket for your school, club or representative side, every cricketer needs to understand the Laws of Cricket and respect cricket's much cherished reputation for 'Fair Play.'
Cricket is a fun sport and should be played with a competitive edge. But all players should know there are certain boundaries which must not be crossed. The most important result in any match is that everyone enjoys themselves.
The MCC Spirit of Cricket code of conduct has been passed down through the years to make sure every match is played in the right spirit. The Spirit of the Game demands RESPECT and you must remember that the following actions are against that Spirit:
- Over the top appealing
- Using bad language,
- Intimidating the opposition or umpires
- Deliberately dangerous bowling
- Damaging the pitch or the ball
- Outright cheating
The Play Hard, Play Fair quiz is open to all cricketers and is designed to test your basic knowledge of the game, give you a greater understanding of how to behave towards your opponents and match officials, and help you make the right decision in the heat of the moment in a match situation.
