Cricket, sometimes known as the "Gentleman's Game", represents a set of principles and manners that have been loved for many years. Cricket has a special spirit that extends beyond the boundaries and runs and includes fair play, sportsmanship, and respect for the game and its players. The fundamentals of cricket etiquette, customs and unwritten laws are what make the game what it is, encapsulated in this oft spoken of "Spirit of Cricket".
Many believe and prescribe to the importance of maintaining the gentlemanly behaviour that makes cricket a truly special game, from praising the accomplishments of the opposition to sustaining the spirit of fair play.
