Play Hard, Play Fair and Stay in the Game
Whether you are playing for your school, club or representative side, every young 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.
A code of conduct has been passed down through the years to make sure every match is played in the right spirit. Over the top appealing, using bad language, intimidating the opposition or umpires, deliberately dangerous bowling, damaging your kit or the pitch and outright cheating, are all examples of bad behaviour which does not belong on a Cricket field.
This quiz 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.
