HEALTH BENEFITS OF CRICKET
To play cricket you need to be fit and strong and have good hand-eye coordination and ball-handling skills. Cricket involves sprinting between wickets and running to stop balls, as well as bowling and throwing. The health benefits of playing cricket include building endurance and stamina, developing balance and improving hand-eye coordination. Cricket also develops skills such as team building skills and social skills.
