Spirit of Cricket Award

The first item in the official cricket rules is “The Preamble – The Spirit of Cricket”.

The club awards the Spirit of Cricket award to a team or individual who we as a club believes has played and presented themselves according to this spirit. Nominations are sought from the entire club with the award given at a presentation afternoon at the end of the season.

The Spirit of Cricket notes that it is just as important for cricket to be played within the spirit of the game as it is to be played to the rules.

As part of this, participants at all levels must show respect for opponents, your own captain and team, the role of the umpires, the game and its traditional values.
