Australian cricket lover, Paul Friend, invented the initial concept of Lords of Cricket many years ago. He would play the game by himself for hours. While the game has now been developed beyond its original concept, the one player aspect remains. The game can be played by one player, two players or many players.

The Lords of Cricket Playing Board is divided into four parts, one for each of the different versions of a game of cricket. The board consists of six circles, each one representing the six balls in an over. Each game of Lords of Cricket is played with cricket ball-shaped cards, each designed to imitate different formats of the game of cricket (Test cricket, One Day International, Twenty-20 and backyard cricket).
- Red cards are for Test cricket
- White cards are for One Day International and Back Yard cricket
- Yellow cards are used for Twenty-20 cricket
There are four dice
- White - Ball Dice - numbered from 1 to 6 representing the number of the ball in the over
