MCC has released a new Laws App
MCC has released the first ever Laws of Cricket app, available to download free on Android and Apple devices.

Laws of Cricket contains easy to understand instructions for each of the 42 Laws, new imagery and a Laws quiz.

Derek Brewer, MCC Chief Executive, said: "This app is the perfect introduction to the game for a new supporter. As Guardians of the Laws and Spirit of Cricket, it is vital that MCC embraces the new audiences that the sport has gained in recent years and makes the Laws of the game even more accessible. 

"It is another example of MCC's commitment to investing in digital - an area in which the club strives to remain ahead of the curve within cricket."

The Laws are categorised into eight sections explaining everything from how to set up a game, to appeals and modes of dismissals.

15 Laws animations are available to view, all of which are voiced by writer, broadcaster and actor Stephen Fry and explain various Laws of the game such as 'Damaging the Pitch' and 'Obstructing the Field'. 

Fry is helped in his explanations of the Laws by Tommy, an animated young cricketer who learns the Laws throughout the animations. 

The app also features 18 separate videos of umpire signals, helping to simplify the Laws of Cricket for players, officials and fans so they can decipher exactly what an umpire's hand movements mean. 

The app also includes a Laws quiz, which tests the user on knowledge acquired through the videos and animations previously mentioned.

This quiz caters for a wide range of cricketing experience with 'Beginner, 'Intermediate' and 'Advanced' levels available to select. Scores can then be shared via social media.
