The game and the field

Cricket is a bat and ball game played between two groups of 11 players on an enormous round field.


In the focal point of the field is a rectangular pitch (20m long) where the bowling and batting activity happens.

Like baseball, one group 'bats' while the other group 'fields'.

Be that as it may, in cricket the batting group bat two by two, and they keep batting until 10 of the 11 colleagues are 'out'.

The handling group should keep handling until 10 of the batting group are 'out' (for example there is just a single hitter left - no pair).


A round of cricket is partitioned into 'Overs' and 'Innings'. One 'over' is comprised of 6 balls. After 6 balls have been bowled, the bowler should change. Anybody in the handling group can bowl, yet most groups generally have 4 or 5 expert bowlers and 5 or 6 expert batsmen.


Scoring runs

The batting group should score however many 'runs' as could be expected, by hitting the ball and rushing to the opposite finish of the pitch. In the event that the batsman can arrive at the opposite finish of the pitch effectively, he scores 1 'run'. On the off chance that he can arrive at the opposite finish of the pitch and return, he scores 2 runs and so forth.

Assuming he hits the ball to the edge of the field, he scores 4 runs. In the event that he can hit the ball to the edge of the field without skipping, he scores 6 runs.

The batsman can keep on batting until he is 'out' - and afterward he will be supplanted by his next partner.

Once in a while the primary batsman is rarely out, and he scores 100 or 200+ runs in the game.


There are a wide range of sorts of bowlers; some bowl exceptionally quick, and some bowl more slow yet turn the ball. One vital rule for all bowlers is that the ball should skip once prior to arriving at the batsman.

This is clearly totally different to baseball, where the ball doesn't bob among pitcher and hitter.


 Cricket is an extremely strategic game. The handling group skipper will change the places of his defenders relying upon the kind of bowler or the sort of batsman.


The most effective method to be 'out'

The batsmen can be out in various ways. For instance:


1) Caught: He hits the ball and a defender gets it.

2) Bowled: The bowler bowls the ball and hits the batsman's 'stumps'.

3) LBW (Leg before wicket): The bowler bowls the ball and hits the batsman's legs - which block the ball hitting the 'stumps'.

4) Run out: The batsmen attempt to run, however the handling group toss the ball and hit the stumps before the batsman is protected.

5) Hit wicket: The batsman hits his own stumps with his body, hardware, or apparel.
