Can anybody tell me how to play cricket ?

Posted by: | Comments (5)

I’m living in Saudi Arabia, and in my city there is a lot of Indian people, they always playing cricket in the street, it makes me happy when I’m watching there are playing.

I want to know how they play cricket (the rules and scoring), because i wanna play with them.

Well there is two teams 11 men on each team but this can vary when being played at home, one side bats and one side fields, the batting team must score as many runs as possible, runs are made by running from crease to crease on (a line in the ground around half a meter in front of the stumps) how runs are made is by the fielding team member throwing the ball from one end of the pitch at the batter at the other end the batter tries to either block the ball from hitting the stumps or can smash it in any direction he feels like, the fielding teams goal is to catch or nock the stumps of the batting teams players until all batters are delared out( there are two batters on the pitch at one time both can be caught out or stumped) the stumps are the three sticks with another two sticks sitting on top of the three sticks.

Batters can also be run out as they try to score runs the way that happens is if one of the fielders grabs the ball after it has been hit and either throws it at the stumps or knocks the stumps if the batter who is running in the direction of the stumps that have just been knocked and he doesn’t make it to the crease (line) before the stumps are knocked then he is out fielders must cooperate with great concentration to achieve a run out.

After the batting team is all out then it’s the fielding teams turn to bat and the batting teams turn to field the batting team must now try to get more runs than the previose team to win if they are all bowled out, caught out or run out before they can score more runs than the opponets teams run score than than they have lost.
Another way for a teams to swap is when the overs are all depleted, which is when all bowlers have used up there bowls.

Bowlers: each fielder gets 2 overs each, an over is made up of 6 bowls.

That’s all I know sorry if it is confusing.
Hope you enjoy the world of playing the wonderful game of cricket.
From a true blue AUSSIE (Australian).

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!! ):-)
