Cricket is a game played between teams of eleven individuals on a flat, oval field at the edge of which are two fixed wickets, each containing two batsmen, two fast bowlers and one slow bowler. The entire match has thirty-four overs and is usually broken into two halves, with each half lasting twenty-four overs. A cricket match is won by winning either the toss or batting or neither of these, whichever is agreed upon prior to the start of the match. The batting team bats first, usually without the captain’s permission, who will often wait till the last moment to allow other members of his team to bat as well. Once the batting team is put on their pads, the match can begin.
The bowlers bowl first, and if not wicket is struck, they will then try to hit the ball over the wicket towards the outfield. When the ball is struck it is caught by either the batsman or any other player, or both, who is standing in front of the wicket and is behind the stumps, or the person nearest the wicket if there are two or more, and it is then scored. If a bowler is unable to get the ball over the wicket then he has to bowl it back again, and it is scored after each delivery. The other players bowl for as long as they have the ball, but once it runs out they walk to the outfield and are allowed to return to their place. If any of the players is unable to bowl a ball over the wicket, then they are out and their team is out of the match. The score is then added together.
Cricket is one of the world’s oldest forms of the game and it dates back as early as the 7th century BC in ancient India. Today, there are two divisions of the game; one is known as the Ranji Divisioan (or National League) and the other is called the Kanyakumari Divisioan, or Western Division. In either division, the winner earns a place in the semi finals of the World Cup, while in case of a tie, one wins the final and the other wins the bronze. and/or silver. trophy. A champion, who has been awarded the coveted trophy of a World Cup winner, is also entitled to be awarded the ‘Dal Shriya’, or ‘Masterton’.
