The basics of cricket, explained

Cricket is played with two teams of 11 players each on a circular, natural or artificial turf. Each team takes turns batting and playing the field, as in baseball. In cricket, the batter is a batsman and the pitcher is a bowler. The bowler tries to knock down the bail of the wicket. A batsman tries to prevent the bowler from hitting the wicket by hitting the ball. Two batsmen are on the pitch at the same time.

Batters can run after the ball is hit. A run is scored each time the batters change places on the pitch. The team with the highest number of runs wins the match. Six runs are scored when a ball is hit out of the field on a fly. Four runs are scored when a ball is hit out of the field on a bounce.
