YCF Indoor Cricket League round-up

The YCF Indoor Cricket League 2022 is under way with a thrilling competition set for this year as we see the action-packed soft ball competition take place across several areas in the region.

Our flagship league in Leeds, in partnership with LPL, has opened to more teams across the city this year. For the 2022 winter season there are 48 participants taking part across eight teams, with each team batting it out for a place in the final’s day on Sunday, 20 November, at Leeds City Academy.

Our competition, part of our core cities programme, runs through October and November annually and is designed to run alongside the similar soft ball leagues in Sheffield and Bradford.

Vinnie Patel, pictured above and player of the match from Team Leeds Indian, said: “As someone who lives and breathes cricket the autumn/winter indoor cricket league enables everyone to enjoy competitive cricket all year round at a fantastic facility that is Leeds City College.

“The indoor game demands players to use a different technique compared to outdoor which encourages the development of different skill sets. As a result, the league is full of unusual and interesting things such as mystery spinners, inventive field settings, power-plays, and unorthodox batsman.”
