How To Play Gilli Danda / Kittipulla:

  • A small circle of four feet diameter is drawn. In the center, a small oblong shaped hole is dug which should be smaller than the Gilli. Two teams are formed. One bat and the other fields.
  • Fielders stand in a position from where they can catch the Gilli.
  • The first player places the Gilli in the hole and lifts it quickly high in the air with the danda and then strikes it.
  • If he fails at first, he gets another turn. If the fielder catches the Gilli before it touches the ground, the batsman is out and the second player tries to hit the Gilli. If the Gilli is not caught, then the fielder has to throw the Gilli to the circle where Danda is kept, if the Gilli hits the Danda the offender is out, or even if the Gilli reaches near to the Danda which is shorter than the measurement of one Danda and Gilli then also the player is out.
  • Then the offender will hit the Gilli with Danda and while it jumps he hits it, the distance between where he stands and where Gilli falls has to be measured by the player with the help of Danda. One Danda length measured can be considered as one point,  If the player tosses the Gilli twice or thrice before hitting then his scores will be two times or three times than the actual.
  • He gets three chances to hit the Gilli. If he does not hit it or is caught, he is out. The game continues till all batsmen are out. The team changes side and continues the same way. The team with the higher score wins.
