Street cricket or Gully cricket is a stripped-down version of the international sport of cricket, which is very popular in India. In the countryside, dried lakes and river beds are often used as playgrounds for cricket. In cities, it is played in apartment corridors, apartment parking lots, parks etc. People typically play street cricket in narrow by lanes, streets, and ghettos. But in this busy schedule it is very hard to arrange cricket players to challenge them so Yamaha with the concept of ‘BRO’s Cricket League’ wants to provide a platform where anyone can create his own team and find other teams to compete with and also gain a chance to win exciting prizes.
