Cricket is an umbrella term for the various games played with a bat and ball throughout the world, although the modern game of cricket is played between two teams of eleven players. Cricket is a sport with several variations and is popular in many parts of the world. It is popular in countries that share a common culture and historical roots, such as India, England, South Africa, and Australia. The sport is also popular in countries that are culturally different, such as the West Indies and New Zealand. The sport is played in many different ways, but the basic rules are the same in every country.
How to Play Cricket
The rules of cricket are pretty simple and actually quite similar to those of baseball or softball. In cricket, two teams of 11 players each are on the field at one time. The object of the game is to score more runs than the other team. The two teams are separated by a cricket ground, which is usually divided into two fields with a boundary between them. A cricket ball is made up of cork, rubber, or leather wrapped around a fibreglass core. The ball is covered in white latex that makes it easier to grip. The ball is round enough to bounce off the ground but not so round that it travels too far. The ball is usually between 12 and 16 inches around, but the size varies depending on the cricket league you’re playing in.
