I played it when I was about 7~9, I was abroad in a country then where it was quite popular. Back home though never played it again, we had baseball as alternative here for hitting a ball with a stick :P.

well more than playing cricket i am more interested in watching cricket. I have occasionally played cricket in the neighbourhood in nearby parks with friends and relatives. It is fun. But watching thrilling cricket match featuring India is more exciting and fun for me. good luck folks. :)

I started playing cricket when i was merely a child about 4 years old in my courtyard with my father as my first coach. He always promoted me to play cricket as he can play well too. after that i got some academy and personal coaching by some good coaches but unfortunately i am studying as an engineering graduate. but above all still i am playing for my college team and it brings me fun every time..

hey friend i also started playing cricket near abt when i was about 6 years old .I started playing with some of senior boys in my locality .initially i dont have bat with me and then i used to play with a wooden stick and plastic balls on cemented floor i remember we even played cricket with our hands. It was that we were not allowed to take bats in to our school ,so what we do was that we make a big ball out of the foil paper in which our lunch was packed .So we actually combined that into a big ball, and then covered it with a plastic bag and then taped .This ball was not very light and also not very heavy that it caused pain to hands.and would last for abt 8-1- days .it was really very fun like this .

The only type of cricket I've played is street cricket, except on 2-3 occasions at school and college when we played serious matches! I think I started when I was 6-7 years of age. I havent played for many years now due to my work schedule!

I would have played cricket around 10 to 11 years. I don't remember exactly but must be around that age only. Since then i have been playing it at least on the weekends every week without fail.
