KFC Mini-Cricket is the first taste of cricket that aspirant young boys and girls are introduced to. This softball level gives the children the enjoyment that comes with participating in a team sport and also gets them acquainted with the basics of the game, including batting, bowling and fielding. KFC Mini-Cricket was the first organised softball cricket game in the world, and has drawn over two million children to date.
A few changes were made to certain elements within the programme, including extending the age of girls participating to 13 and the introduction of pre-school mini-cricket for children of four years old. In Cricket South Africa’s bid to make cricket a truly national sport of winners and accessible to all, the organisation also introduced mini-cricket for the differently abled.
More than 105 000 children participate in the programme around the country, while the number of coaches and schools participating has increased to nearly 8 000 and 4 800, respectively.
