Yes. I was the extra person in the middle in a basketball match.
6. Every game has some rules. The game is played according to those rules. Let us see what happens if the rules are changed. For example – In cricket, a batsman gets ‘out’, if the bails fall off the stumps. Imagine if there is a rule that the entire team will be ‘out’, if all the three stumps fall. Would it be fun!
Changes in the rules are made always. Playing cricket with new rules gives more fun to both the spectators and the players.
7. Try and play the game with this rule. Similarly, make some rules for other games and play.
