The latest rules in the game of cricket besides other important things such as code of conduct, behaviour of the players on the ground as well as off the field were discussed during camp organised by former Punjab Ranji player and cricket coach of Punjab Agricultural University R.D. Singh here today.

M.S. Mahal of the College of Agriculture, PAU, and an umpire on the panel of the BCCI, had a lively interaction with the campers and gave useful tips to the budding players.

Dr Mahal informed the young cricketers that players should follow the code of conduct laid down by the apex body of the game. “A player can not misbehave with his fellows, umpires and with the spectators during a match and even after the play. The violator is penalised,” he added.

He said the intensity of the game was so acute that umpires’ job had become very difficult and scanned very minutely. If an umpire gave a wrong verdict, he drew the wrath of the spectators as well as the media, the umpire said. “Umpire is a human being and can commit a mistake like others. The umpire’s decision should not be debated upon,” Dr Mahal advised.

Karan Goel and Ankur Kakkar, members of the present Punjab Ranji team along with Gurpreet Singh Guri also visited the camp and interacted with the trainees. Mr R.D. Singh, organiser of the camp, thanked the guests.
