Cricket in the winter
What do Scott Styris, Chris Cairns, Martin Guptill and Andre Adams all have in common?
Playing for the Blackcaps or something they have done for the Blackcaps? Wrong ! Ok lets try another one.
What do Michael Bates, Jeet Raval and Martin Guptill all have in common?
Playing for the Suburbs New Lynn Cricket club? Wrong.
Ok the answer is cricket but not the type you are thinking of...
Styris, Cairns, Guptill and Adams all made their debuts for New Zealand at Indoor Cricket before they made their outdoor debut for the "Black Caps". The Suburbs boys are the next generation of Auckland stars who are plying their trade inside over the winter.
By virtue of it's fast and all inclusive nature, indoor cricket has developed some of the best all rounders in the recent history of cricket. This is simply because all players have to bat and bowl as well as do their bit for the team in the field. Your reactions have to be quick, your bowling accurate, and you need to be able to score runs from every ball faced.
If this all sounds terribly exciting to you and you would like to spend your winter improving your all round cricket skills then there is no better place to do it than the Action Indoor World series of cricket.
You'll have heaps of fun each week, be able to improve your all round cricket skills and get a head start for your next summer season outdoors. All games are played on Fridays and Sundays against teams of similair age or ability and everyone gets a go batting and bowling.
For coaches as well it is a great way to keep the majority of your team together over the winter and work on the team spirit as well as good cricket specific issues.
