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.

I saw the South African and England one dy players practice like this. The batsman stands opposite a net, and the feeder throws balls underarm between ankle and shin height to simulate a half volley or full toss. The batsman hits the ball back into the net.
