Welcome to the Indoor
Cricket South Africa Website.
Indoor Cricket as it is now known,
was started in Australia in 1984 after it
was brought over from Germany. The nets
were introduced as only difference and this
successful formula has grown from strength to strength
in various countries around the world. Played in countries like
Australia, New Zealand, England, South Africa, India and few other
countries, this great sport has its various levels from social matches to
league matches to Provincial or State tournaments all the way up to inter-
national matches including World Cups and Masters Series.
