Unique Cricket rules at this Venue

Cricket ground outfield is surrounded by nets (max height of 60mtrs) to protect members, infrastructure and houses in the surrounding. If a batsman hits the ball on these net, then six runs are awarded however if Batsman hits above the net then Batsman is declared out. In 2020 YCAC administration released strict rules and guidelines with heavy run penalties along with

match suspension to player and captain.

The club is surrounded by many houses on one side and club facility to the other side. There have been cases where players have consistently hit the ball outside of the ground and damaged houses, cars. In summer, Kids and family enjoy a swimming pool and tennis and there is a serious chance of injury to them. Insurance companies were not particularly happy with YC&AC.
