If you want to start playing, the easiest thing to do is grab a bat and ball, use a nearby wall as the wicket and get going - but watch out for windows!

The England and Wales Cricket Board have also come up with a new version of the game, Urban Cricket, to get beginners started.

You can check their website out for ideas using the link at the top right of this page and could even win some free cricket equipment!
