Cricket Match – All About Cricket
Cricket is an exceptionally fast-paced bat and ball game played on a cricket ground in the middle of which is an oval shaped rectangular ground that has a wicket in each end, each consisting of two stumps on three upright posts. In the first innings, the batsmen take one run for every wicket they take. The outfielders can collect two runs for every wicket they collect, or one run for every wicket they don’t. When there are four wickets to be taken, the wickets are taken by one player at a time from both sides of the field, then the batsman takes all the four to score a run. This is known as ‘fourthing’, the batsman taking the wickets of the batsmen who were dismissed earlier, and the bowlers who had not even taken a wicket in the previous over.
Cricket has been around for thousands of years and has been popular since its early days. Cricket originated in England but became extremely popular in the United Kingdom only during the eighteenth century. In India, cricket originated many years later, in India’s subcontinent, where the game has become extremely popular. The English version of cricket, known as English cricket, has a slightly different rule set from the rest of the game. There are two separate categories of cricket, which are known as Test and one-day international.
Cricket is considered to be one of the most intriguing sports in the world, with countless different variations. Cricket was invented as a result of an idea by a British officer named James Fenton. With the assistance of a bat and ball, the game is played in a very fast-pace manner, with players using their footwork and hitting the ball with great strength, agility and power.
