GULLY CRICKET ( One pitch- One hand cricket)
Yes. You read it right. Cricket was already mentioned as first game, so what? This is a different format altogether and the dynamics are totally different. When every other sport has multiple format such as shooting, so why should cricket alone have just one event.
This game is played within a closed environment with walls all around the playing arena. A maximum of 4 to 5 players play in each team and if a catch is taken with a single hand even after a pitch, the batsman is deemed out. There are no running runs, and walls act as imaginary fielders beyond which 1, 2, 3 runs or a boundary is granted.
Due to lack of playgrounds and open spaces in India, everyone would have played this once at least in this life. This would’ve built in them a solid defense technique and one hand catching abilities.
Extra investment: This game needs no investment. Even a terrace of any building would do.
