I have a question regarding the game of cricket. Since it happens to be my favourite game and is now played in three different formats. Nevertheless, I would like to have some information about the indoor cricket. I want to know who invented indoor cricket and when it actually started.

     The indoor cricket existed since the late 1960s, whilst the game in its present form began to take shape in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Conventional cricket has been played indoors at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne, Australia, but there are no other enclosed stadiums with a playing surface the size of a full-sized cricket field in any major cricket playing country. The remarkable sport of indoor cricket should not be confused with conventional cricket played indoors. In terms of the concept of the game indoor cricket is similar to cricket. However, the game itself differs significantly from its traditional counterpart in several ways, most notably on the field of play and the duration of the game. The first significant example of organized indoor cricket took place quite surprisingly in Germany. A tournament was held under the sponsorship of the Husum Cricket Club in a hall in Flensburg in the winter of 1968-69. It wasn't until the 1970s that the game began to take shape as a codified sport. Despite the early popularity of the sport in England, a different version of indoor cricket developed by two different parties in Perth, Western Australia in the late 1970s evolved into the sport known as indoor cricket today.
