By the phrase no more we mean Someone doesn't want something anymore. Eg:

Son: Mom, I am going to play cricket.

Mom: No more cricket! Your exams are very close.

The same way, can I say:

No more doing something: No more playing cricket.

No more someone doing something: No more students playing cricket.

In the last sentence only "students" are being prohibited to play cricket.

Are all the the three forms correct?

  • No more does not necessarily mean "someone doesn't want something anymore." Depending on context, it's either a simple statement of fact or an imperative (command). But it doesn't say anything about why there should be no more of something. Commented Oct 14, 2019 at 6:29

Your last example could be interpreted as: there are no more students playing cricket, either because playing cricket has been prohibited or the cricket-playing students have left. I think you are looking for: no more playing cricket for(the)students or no more playing cricket for you (your second example).

  • "Mamma called the doctor and doctor said: No more kitten jumping on the bed." Is this part of children rhyme grammartical?
