Car Cricket
Car Cricket is more popular in Britain than in any part of the world. Also known as Pub Cricket, Car Cricket is played while driving down the road in a car. The rules for the game are as follows:

The scoring is done by looking at the names of the pubs. For instance the "batsman" scores a run for every leg in the name of a pub. If he comes across a pub with the mane Police Dog, he scores four runs (one run each for the four legs of the dog). In some cases the word "arm" in the name of a pub fetches the player two runs. Sometimes the scoring is also limited to six, irrespective of the number of arms and legs in the name. So while sometimes names such as The Million Hare can fetch someone four million runs, it is not applied. A batsman is declared out if he comes across a pub with no legs in the title and it is then the next players turn to score runs. Another way of getting out is coming across a pub, which has a name associated with royalty like The King's Solitude.



Car Cricket was once very popular, but now with modernization the game has been seen to fade away. With most highways being built over bypasses, motorists hardly come across pubs and that prevents them from playing Car Cricket.
