Let’s not lie to ourselves, Football is the greatest sport in the US right now, but no one gives a crap about Rugby or even Soccer.

Baseball is in 2nd place, and no one gives a crap about Cricket.

What would the sport of Cricket have to change in order to be as popular as Baseball in America?

For example, what types of rule changes?

and an extra question, Which sport is better? And if Baseball is truly better, why does Cricket continue to exist?

hot chicks in even hotter outfits. I would watch.

How to play cricket alone?

Posted by: | Comments (4)

How can I learn to play cricket alone?

Hey all. I’m an American learning to play cricket for a team this summer. My question is: How can I learn the game, or at least practice the fundamentals alone with minimal access to equipment. I can probably find a bat somewhere, but what drills can I do to improve myself as a player? Thanks, J.P.

Cricket is a team sport played between two teams of 11 players. Each team has its own captain, multiple batsmen, multiple bowlers and other players acting as fielders. It is a bat-and-ball game played on a roughly elliptical grass field, in the centre of which is a flat strip, called a pitch.

Steps

1. Choose the batsman and bowler. A team consists of eleven players. Depending on his or her skills, a player may be selected as batsman or bowler.

2. Choose the wicket keeper. Teams nearly always include a specialist wicket-keeper because of the importance of this fielding position. A wicketkeeper is almost equivalent to a catcher in baseball without the fingering signals.

3. Choose the umpire. Two on-field umpires preside over a match. One umpire will stand behind the wicket at the end from which the ball is bowled, and adjudicate on most decisions. The other will stand near the fielding position called “square leg”, which offers a side view of the batsman, and assist on decisions for which he has a better view. When you choose the umpire, he or she should come from the players, who will be resting or waiting for his or her number to come and play. But try to select the person who knows the basic rules from all 42 Laws of Cricket.

4. Choose your match type. There are 3 types of matches: * ODI (One-Day International); and * Test Match The most common one is ODI, because in this type of match, each team has to play 50 overs (6 Balls per over) and it is played for one-day only. Read more about test matches by clicking here. * Twenty/20 matches are the same as ODI’s but only contain 20 overs

5. Choose which team plays what. Selecting which team will play what (batting/bowling-fielding), is decided by making a coin toss between the captains of the two teams. The captain who wins decides which play to take whether batting or bowling-fielding.

6. Start playing!

Tips * Try to learn some of the main rules, which will prevent you from being “out”.

* Read all the rules first throughout the link provided in “External Links”, and then play, because this article hasn’t explained about “runs” etc; to do this would make the article too long. This article is just an explanation of the procedure before starting playing the game. Warnings * Do not cheat in this game, for example, you have been selected as the umpire, so don’t be showing favor for the opposing team only. Play fair and fair play!

Things You’ll Need

* A stadium or a large ground; the local oval is fine

* A wicket

* Bats

* Balls

* Umpires who knows the basic laws of cricket

* Protection equipment known as cricket kit, which contains helmet, elbow guard, leg pad, gloves, abdomen guard. Hope it helps.

Good Luck!! ):-)

What are the lines on the handle of the cricket bats?

I think that they are called strings, but I am not sure. I just bought a new bat. Slazenger Hyperbalde (SH) and it has a line, gap, then another line, please tell me what it means and the effect on my bats.

I’ts the strings, the more you have the better. They will help to give ur bat a bit more power and less vibrations when you hit the ball! that’s all they do basically! hope it helped! =)

What is power play in Cricket and how it use during the play?

Power Play are using in Cricket ODI what is this and what is the purpose of this power play during the match and how could the captain obtain this power play?

Powerplay maens the fielding restrictions which allow the batsmen to score more runs easily. Fielding restriction means that only 2 players are allowed to field outside the 30 yard circle. Earlier, there was a fielding restriction of 30% of overs of one innings. In a 50 overs match, the fielding restriction was of 15 overs.

Similarly, if a match was reduced to 20 overs, then the fielding restriction was for 6 overs. But nowadays, the restrictions are divided into three parts known as powerplays. The first ten overs are the first powerplay. Then the other two powerplays are of 5 overs each and the fielding captain decides when he wants to have it.
