Cape Town – As the 2015 World Cup in Australasia grabs the attention of cricket-lovers across the planet, it may be no bad time to celebrate the game in your living room via a bright new, proudly South African board game.

An attractive gift to followers of cricket, either young or old, “CricketWickeT” is the brainchild of Adrian Labuschagne.

It combines the key elements of competitive fun with an educative, general knowledge-testing aspect on the game.

“CricketWickeT” is played on a flip-open, oval-style board marked with fielding positions and other essential cricket law information – making it especially attractive to school-level existing cricketers or aspirants.

“Batting” and “bowling” sides are first chosen to get competitive juices flowing.

Featuring use of a dice and cards featuring varied questions on the game to ensure its smooth continuity, “CricketWickeT” is compactly-packed to ensure easy set-up in most environments.

There is an appropriate balance between technical questions on the game and more pub quiz-like ones, for example on legendary players or grounds and statistical records (these may need careful, necessary updating from time to time!).

The game is already available on shelves at Toy Kingdom (V&A Waterfront, Cape Town) and will soon be available more nationally. It can also be accessed on
