    Dangers of playing indoor cricket


    Played on rectangular courts enclosed in strong, tight netting indoor cricket carries similar risks to those of regular cricket. Here are some of the risks of playing indoor cricket.

    Dangers of playing indoor cricket

    Indoor cricket is played on fitted carpets similar to artificial outdoor pitches. In addition to the risk of injuries by slipping while running, players could also be injured by tripping if, for instance, such carpets are loose or damaged.

    While playing indoor cricket does mean a lighter ball is used, this ball is still hard. It also:

    • Still, travels at significant speeds
    • Swings more than traditional red cricket balls
    • Spins to a greater degree than a regular cricket ball

    This, of course, means players still face the risk of potentially serious impact injuries to the face, head or body when hit by the ball.

    Other risks while playing indoor cricket include:

    • Finger injuries while batting or trying to catch a ball
    • Collisions with other players

    As off-pitch players, coaches, etc. sit on benches within the enclosed area, there is also a risk of:

    • Players getting too close to them and tripping over their feet or crashing into them
    • People sitting on the benches being hit by a ball
    • Poorly maintained benches injuring those sitting on them (i.e. splinters, collapsing benches)

    As with any other indoor or outdoor sport, many indoor cricket injuries can be prevented by:

    • Wearing appropriate protective gear
    • Acting responsibly and generally taking care
    • Ensuring carpeting, benches, etc. are kept in a well-maintained, safe condition

    Indoor cricket accidents

    Some indoor cricket injuries are caused by players or other people on or near the pitch acting carelessly or recklessly. Others may be caused by poor maintenance of equipment, benches or flooring. If you were injured during an indoor cricket match and someone else was responsible for your indoor cricketing accident, you could be eligible to make a cricket injury claim.
