Watching cricket can be difficult on the off chance that you don’t have the foggiest idea about the guidelines administering the game.

Equipment required

On a basic level, the game of cricket requires a ball, a bat, and wickets. 


The game of cricket is played between two teams, each of which has 11 players. These 11 players comprise batsmen, bowlers, and a wicket keeper. The teams also have a reserve player, who is used in case any of the 11 players get injured. Each team has a captain. This player is principally answerable for guaranteeing that a team has only 11 players on the field at some random time and they perform to the best of their ability. While every player may have an expert job they can take up any roles should they wish.


To apply the cricket rules and ensure the rules of the game are maintained all through the game there are two umpires set up during games. These umpires are liable for making decisions about the game and telling the scorers of these judgments.

Cricket field

The match is typically played on a huge oval shaped field. This field has a 22 yard pitch at the center. Three wickets are set at the end of the pitch. Ground sizes differ enormously in this game yet are normally played on a round grass field with a periphery of around 200m. Around the edge of the field is the boundary, which is fundamentally the line between being in play and out of play.





In a match, one side takes a go to bat and score runs, while the other team will bowl and handle the ball to limit the resistance from scoring. The main objective in cricket is to score however many runs as could reasonably be expected against the adversary. Before the match starts, the captains will flip a coin, with the winner of the throw having the option to choose which team bats and fields first.

How it is played 

When the game is in advancement, every one of the 11 individuals from the fielding team must be on the field, however, just two individuals from the batting team are permitted to be on the playing ground. A player is chosen from the fielding team and he is known as the bowler. The bowler will at that point endeavor to hit the wicket with the ball, while a wicket keeper will be behind the wicket to get the ball in the event that it misses. The other 9 players from the fielding team will also be on the ground and will try to catch the ball, which is hit by the batsmen.



The batsman will endeavor to hit the bowled ball before it hits the wicket. The job of the batsman is to keep the wicket from getting hit by the ball, by batting the ball away. Also, to score a run, both batsmen need to run from their individual wickets to the next whatever the number of occasions as would be prudent after a ball has been hit.


A run is scored when a batsman hits the ball with their bat and the two batsmen at the wicket are able to effectively rush to the opposite end. The batsmen can run however many times as they like prior to stopping till the bowler gets the ball. On the off chance that the ball crosses the boundary after getting bounced at being hit by the bat then 4 runs are given. In the event that the ball goes over the rope without bouncing, at that point 6 runs are granted to the batting team.





The batting team will attempt to score however many runs as could be expected under the circumstances in the apportioned time while the bowling team will attempt to stop them by fielding. After one inning, both the teams swap their positions. The team that makes the most runs at the end is the winner.
