My aim is to make an e-book to develop good understanding of cricket laws & game's history among new members of our cricket club, which can be read by users with a common computer with a common operating system installed on such as Windows XP. The e-book should contain Different types of multimedia to make reading & learning fun as well as making it different from usual paper books.

Problems, situation & Solutions.

Most of the members do not have good cricket background.

They do not know much about cricket laws as well as the game's history. New members must have good knowledge of the laws beforehand to play the game in appropriate way and should know at least a bit about game's history to develop good understanding of the game and distinguish between other cricket-like games (i.e. Baseball).

Knowing about history of the game is always an advantage to players but knowing about all of game's laws is the fundamentals of becoming a good player so that the player should know what to do under special situations.

Our members do not know some very important laws, which are seldom used under normal conditions. Members must know how to deal with the situation if something goes unusual during the match. If they do not know what to do at that very moment they would really lose their image so do the club.

Recent survey shows that approx. 80% of the members do not know about some very important & advanced laws (i.e. Duckworth/Lewis Method). 65% were found to have poor knowledge of history. I hope that this e-book will be a great help to our club members as well as to other young cricket who are interested in the game.
