What is cricket?
Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players each on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket (a set of three wooden stumps) at each end. The game is played by 120 million players in many countries, making it the world’s second most popular sport after football.
Each team takes its turn to bat, attempting to score runs, while the other team fields. Both teams bat and bowl innings, each comprising up to overs (18 deliveries). Bowlers deliver the ball to the batsman who attempts to hit the ball with his bat away from the fielders so he can run to the opposite end of the pitch and score a run. A run is scored when both batsmen have crossed safely to the other end of the pitch; if not, they may attempt further runs by running between wickets.
If the fielding side catches or knocks down one of the batsmen’s wickets they are said to have taken a wicket and that batsman is out of play until his team’s next innings. The dismissal of 10 batsmen from one team in an innings is known as a bowling side taking all 10 wickets or an innings defeat for that team – this rarely happens in professional cricket as it indicates very poor batting by that side.
A typical cricket match lasts around five hours and involves both sides batting twice – once for their first innings and once
The history of cricket
Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players each on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket at each end. The game dates back to the 16th century, and its origins are uncertain. It may have been first played in England, or possibly in Flanders. A folk game played by shepherds in Normandy was known as la soule (or choule), and resembles cricket to a certain extent.
The earliest definite reference to cricket is dated Monday, 17 January 1597 (Julian calendar; Thursday, 27 January 1598 in the Gregorian calendar). In the court case concerning ownership of a certain plot of land, John Derrick testified that he and his friends had played creckett on the site for about fifty years. Given Derrick’s age, this means that cricket could have been played on common land as early as c. 1550.
One possible source for the sport’s name is the Old English word cricc or cryce meaning a crutch or staff. In Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary (1755), he derived cricket from “cryce, Saxon, a stick”. In Old French, the word criquet seems to have meant a kind of club or stick. Given the strong medieval trade connections between south-east England and the County of Flanders when the latter belonged to the Duchy of Burgundy, it
How is the game played?
Cricket is played between two teams of eleven players each, on a cricket field in the center of which is a rectangular pitch. Two wickets, each consisting of three stumps and two bails, are placed at opposite ends of the pitch. The game is played with a red cricket ball.
The bowler bowls the ball from one end of the pitch to the batsman at the other end, who defends the wicket with his bat. The object of the game is to score runs by hitting the ball with the bat and running between the wickets, while the team fielding tries to stop runs being scored and to dismiss the batsmen by catching or bowling them out.
Runs are scored by hitting the ball with the bat and then running to one of the two wickets at opposite ends of the pitch before a fielder can return it to one of the wickets. If both batsmen reach their respective creases safely, they have completed a run. A run can also be scored if either batsman hits the ball over boundary ropes on either side of the field; these hits are called fours and sixes, respectively.
What are the rules of cricket?
Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on a field at the center of which is a 20-meter (22-yard) pitch with a wicket at each end, each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps. The batting side scores runs by striking the ball bowled at the wicket with the bat, while the bowling and fielding side tries to prevent this and dismiss each player (so they are “out”). Means of dismissal include being bowled,
When the ball hits the stumps and dislodges the bails, and by the fielding side catching the ball after it is hit by the bat, but before it hits the ground. When ten players have been dismissed, the innings ends and the teams swap roles. The game is adjudicated by two umpires, aided by a third umpire and match referee in international matches. They communicate with two off-field scorers who record all the match’s statistics.
There are various formats ranging from Twenty20, played over a few hours with each team batting for a single innings of 20 overs, to Test matches, played over five days with unlimited overs and the teams each batting for two innings of unlimited length. Traditionally cricketers play in all-white kit, but in limited overs cricket they wear club or team colors. In addition to International Cricket Council (ICC) members England and Wales, several other national bodies play cricket including Barbados Cricket
The equipment needed to play cricket
In order to play cricket, all you need is a bat, a ball, and two wickets. The batsman hits the ball with their bat and runs between the wickets, while the bowler tries to stop them by bowling the ball at the wickets. In order to score runs, the batsman must hit the ball past the boundary markers. If they are successful, they will earn runs for their team. If the bowler manages to bowl them out, then they will have to leave the crease and hand over their batting spot to another player on their team.
