Cricket Coaching

In Carmel Academy, cricket coaching is provided to students of grade 2 – 8 every Thursday as a Co-curricular activity to prepare them for the development of the school cricket team. We have 2 cricket coaches who diligently coach the students and attend to the needs of the cricket team.

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players each on a cricket field. At the centre of a cricket field is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a target called the wicket (a set of three wooden stumps topped by two bails) at each end. Each phase of play is called an innings during which one team bats attempting to score as many runs as possible while their opponents field. Depending on the type of match, the teams have 1 or 2 innings a piece and when the first innings ends, the teams swap roles for the next innings.
