Cricket

Cricket is a popular outdoor sport with an estimated 1 billion fans worldwide. It is played between two teams with eleven players each. It is a bat and ball game played on a circular or an oval ground with a pitch at the centre.

Each team has to bat and bowl. The team that bats first tries to score as many runs as they can while the other team tries to stop them with their bowling by taking wickets. After the first team finishes batting the other team tries to chase the score. The team which scores the most runs or the team which chases down the target score wins.

Before the match starts, a coin is tossed. The team who wins the toss can choose whether they want to bat or bowl first. There are various formats of cricket, some having 20 overs and some having 50 overs. Each over contains 6 balls. A batsman a score a maximum of 6 runs on a single ball. There are 2 umpires on the field who make sure that players follow the rules of the game.
