It’s a great way to interact with people and its also a great way to learn to cope with winning or losing. Cricket matches can last several hours, and within that time one must work with the team in a cooperative manner to develop and initiate game strategies and win the match

Team Building

It is a team sport. Eleven players must work together for several hours on the field, utilizing strategies to defeat the other team. Children playing cricket learn cooperation and other social skills, while building a sense of pride and accomplishment when their team wins. Even adults can enjoy the opportunity to foster friendships outside of the office. Victory is all the sweeter when shared
