Cage Cricket Sri Lanka – growing the Cage Cricket movement

Sheromie Brewster, Head of Cage Cricket, London was in Sri Lanka to introduce game’s latest format to the island.

Sheromie Brewster, Head of Cage Cricket, London was in Sri Lanka to lay the platform for Cricket’s latest version to flourish in the island as she conducted a few cage cricket sessions along with some local coaches.

A game of cage cricket can be played indoors and outdoors where the scoring opportunities are determined by the specific zones. However, unlike in indoor cricket no running is involved in this format.

Having conducted some sessions at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC), Nondescripts Cricket Club (NCC), Colombo Cricket Club (CCC) and Piliyandala Town Sports Club, Brewster believes that there is a huge potential to promote the game in the country.

“The young people really enjoyed it and the coaches thought it was amazing. So that’s a great sign and now we look to create cage cricket hubs. I believe, this could be a huge success in this country” she told Sunday Island in an interview.

She also claimed that the organizers were planning to stage some cage cricket tournaments in near future in order to promote the game in Sri Lanka.

“The whole idea is to organize tournaments (in order to promote the game) and with the support of coaches we’ll be able to organize tournaments within schools, universities and academies,” she added.

Brewster also revealed that she had discussions with Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) about developing this game around the island. “We’ve had a meeting with Sri Lanka Cricket the other day and they are

saying they’d talk to the coaches and find out their feedback to see how they can develop cage cricket in Sri Lanka,” stated the Head of Cage Cricket, London.

Sir Ian Botham, who is the President of Cage Cricket believes having just 13 rules for the entire game makes it easy to learn and promote. “The great thing about Cage Cricket is that it only has thirteen rules. It can be learned quickly and be played almost anywhere that there’s a confined space. With an ever growing obesity problem and shrinking participation in the parent game, I think now is the time to get behind such an innovative project and get more young people playing the game we love,” he has told the official website of cage cricket.

The Champion leg-spinner Shane Warne who ended up with 708 Test wickets is an ambassador for cage cricket.

Cage Cricket on Sri Lankan shores

Cage Cricket onto Lankan shores
By Romario De Silva – February 7, 2017 133

Cage Cricket, a whole new format of Cricket is set to grace Sri Lanka as schools and clubs look to adapt to the new format.

Cage Cricket was founded in 2004 in the UK by Trevor McArdle and from the moment he discovered it, he knew he was onto something special.

Shiromie Brewster – Head of Cage Cricket London was in Sri Lanka the last three weeks with the intention of promoting this new format and the response she received was mind blowing.

“We have introduced this new format to clubs like SSC, NCC, Mahamaya College and Piliyandala Town Sports Club cricket academy and their response towards it was incredible we hope to take Cage Cricket towards rural areas and expand the reach of it”

ThePapare.com met with her to find out the manner in which the game is played. According to her, Cage Cricket can be played by players of any age with a team consisting of six players. It is played in an area equal to double the size of a practice indoor net.

What is Cage Cricket?

The game itself is simple and has a close relationship with the ethos of Basketball in having only 13 rules, but the spirit of cricket pervades the game and ultimately manifests in the Red Zone where each of the 6 individuals who play have to umpire and score the game for an equal part while fielding. This is revolutionary game theory and the outcomes are positive and numerous.

From a simple cricketing perspective, each player bowls, bats and fields for an equal time in an enclosed area and learns to perform under pressure. Sounds daunting, but it is actually great fun.

Cage Cricket is very similar to the indoor cricket area but there is no running involved. Points are scored when the ball is hit to certain zones by the batter. Each player gets a turn to bat, bowl and Umpire. Points can be added or deducted according to the area where the ball has been placed.

It breaks down traditional barriers to the participation in the sport for people of all abilities and has been designed to develop core life and social skills as well as cricketing competence.

The game has been piloted successfully in schools and communities across the World.

We look forward to more Cage Cricket being played around Sri Lanka,” noted Sheromie.
