    Adapted from and based on the rules of the

    International Cricket Council (ICC)

    Updated, Approved & Adopted by SCCA for March 2018 (v15.1)

    Preamble - **** The Spirit of Cricket ****

    Cricket owes much of its appeal and enjoyment to the fact that it should be played not only

    according to the Laws of cricket (which are incorporated within these Playing rules and

    Conditions), but also within the Spirit of Cricket. The major responsibility for ensuring fair play

    rests with the captains, but extends to all players, umpires and, especially in junior cricket,

    teachers, coaches and parents.

     Respect is central to the Spirit of Cricket.

     Respect your captain, team-mates, opponents and the authority of the umpires.

     Play hard and play fair.

     Accept the umpire’s decision. (even if you don’t agree)

     Create a positive atmosphere by your own conduct, and encourage others to do likewise.

     Show self-discipline, even when things go against you.

     Congratulate the opposition on their successes, and enjoy those of your own team.

     Thank the officials and your opposition at the end of the match, whatever the result.

     It is important that Adults and senior players display positive examples of sportsmanship.

     Cricket is an exciting game that encourages leadership, friendship and teamwork, which

    brings together people from different nationalities, cultures and religions, creates lifelong

    friendships, especially when played within the Spirit of Cricket.
