Before The Game

Ensuring that everything is prepared and ready for game day is vital – cricket needs everyone to play their part. Be organised, communicate and rally together to get grounds ready and ensure as many games as possible are played.

During The Game

Often games are interrupted by inclement weather, so it’s important to act quickly and protect the ground. This will allow swift resumption of play once poor weather passes. It is vital everyone plays their part in getting games back on.

After The Game

Once the game has finished it is important to clear up properly and communicate with team members to aid future fixtures.
