Is Tricket a new sport or new format of Cricket? 

Definitely, Tricket originated from Cricket and more specifically from growing dissatisfaction from newer versions of Cricket especially Twenty20. The game of Cricket in Twenty20 format has been reduced to blind hitting of ball which many do not like.

There are many games which are very similar to another sport. Many a times they share same history. Some examples of such similar sports are –

Rugby and American Football,

Judo and Wrestling,

Karate and Taekwando,

Baseball and Softball,

Squash and Racquet ball,

Paddling and rowing

Billiards and Snooker

 

We believe Tricket is just as similar and different from Cricket as are the examples above. If they deserve to be recognized as separate sports then Tricket and Cricket are two different sports too with similarities.

What is unique in Tricket?

Tricket is a game played between three teams consisting of six players each. The game is played in a fashion somewhat similar to cricket, but there are specific methods and rules of play which are specifically devised for Tricket. Each team bats once while the other two teams bowl and field. The aim of the batting team is to score runs while the aim of the fielding teams is to bowl the batting team out, and collect more runs for themselves. The team with the maximum number of runs wins.

In Tricket, batsmen have more incentives to bat aggressively and tactfully. Bowlers have more incentives to bowl tight and get wickets. The way field is being set and calls are made by the captain of the teams make a huge impact on the outcomes of the game. Depending on the circumstances of the game and their abilities, all teams may not get equal opportunity to bat and bowl. Also depending on the circumstances in the game the interests of the bowling and fielding teams may differ. This makes Tricket a tricky game where tact, technique and luck all play big roles.
