The Spirit of Cricket
Cricket is a game that owes much of its unique appeal to the fact that it should be played not only within its Laws but also within the Spirit of the Game. Any action which is seen to abuse this spirit causes injury to the game itself. The major responsibilty for ensuring the spirit of fair play rests with the captains.
There are Laws which place the responsibility for the team’s conduct firmly on the captians.
Responsibility of the captains
The captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that play is conducted within the spirit of the game as well as within the Laws.
The Spirit of the Game involves RESPECT for:
• Your opponents
• Your own captain and team
• The role of the umpires
• The Game’s traditional values
It is AGAINST the Spirit of the Game:
• To dispute an umpire’s decision by word, action or gesture
• To direct abusive language towards an opponent or umpire
• To indulge in cheating or any sharp practice, for instance:
a) to appeal knowing that the batsman is not out
b) to advance towards an umpire in an aggressive manner when appealing
c) to seek to distract an opponent either verbally or by harrassment with persistent clapping or unnecessary noise under the guise of
enthusiasm and motivation of one’s own side Violence. There is no place for any act of violence on the field of play.
Players Captains and umpires together set the tone for the conduct of a cricket match. Every player is expected to make an important contribution to this.
