Cricket – A Game of Noble People!

Cricket is a game of noble people from England at the end of 18th century. It exemplifies athletic passion and dedication. Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on a roughly circular field, at the center of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. Cricket is quite a popular game in different parts of the world, growing in Germany too.

During my stint at Universität Hamburg, I organized “Introduction to Cricket” event with the collaboration of PIASTA (International Program for All Students and Alumni). The aim of the event was to introduce Cricket playing facilities in Hamburg. It was planned that the participants from different cultures and backgrounds get together and have some fun during the cricket session.

The event scheduled on Saturday, 27th April, 2013. As the meeting point at U2-Mümmelmannserg at 14.45, we met with the participants and welcomed them on behalf of PIASTA. We had a 5-minute walk towards the HSV Cricket sports ground. We reached there around 15.00. The participants were introduced with the trainer. The weather conditions were quite suitable to play. 

The participants were brought to the HSV sports ground and started with the training. The trainer, Faraz, explained as it was the bat-and-ball game. In start, we had basic ball catching practice exercises after warm-up. Everybody there took great interest in different

ball-catching and ball-throwing exercises followed by the run-scoring (running between the two ends of the pitch) skills. In the end, the participants were briefed about different “batting skills” and to properly wearing the equipment for personal safety. The participants wore “batting gloves”, “pads” (to cover legs) and “helmet” (for the safety of head). Then they were briefed about different batting techniques on controlling the ball with its pace.

Most of the participants had no idea about Cricket game before. They were amazed to get introduced and were quite happy to practice by themselves. It was a healthy activity with lots of entertainment and to know about different cultures also. The participants expressed their great interest in the session. They actively took part in the learning activities.

The training session came to an end around 18.00 hours. The Manager of HSV Cricket Club, Khalid Khawaja Rauf, and Captain of HSV2 Cricket team, Bilal Khokhar,  were present at the moment and expressed their full support if the participants would be interested to join the club. The event wouldn’t have been successful without the great support of HSV Cricket Club in general and Khalid (Bhai!) in particular.

Then we all proceeded to a nice nearby restaurant. All the participants had enjoyed their favorite meal with a nice discussion on different topics.

The feedback from the participants was so overwhelming for not only us but for the HSV Cricket Club organizers as well. The participants thanked PIASTA for organizing such a unique and interesting activity. They also praised the efforts of arranging a nice meal in the restaurant. In the end, the participants happily went back to their homes with nice memories.
