Cricket

Hello friends  this is blogger Mayank Kumar and today I’m going to tell you about cricket.

This is a game played using a bat and ball between two teams with 11 players each. During a match 1 team is bowling/fielding and the other is batting. On a stadium when the match is going on 1 player will bowling on the pitch and from the same team another player will do wicket keeping whereas the other 9 players will be fielding. From the other team two do batting and stay on the pitch.  This was just rough explanation, now lets go bit deep about it.

There are various formats ranging from Twenty20, played over a few hours with each team batting for a single innings of 20 overs, to Test matches, played over five days with unlimited overs and the teams each batting for two innings of unlimited length. Traditionally cricketers play in all-white kit, but in limited overs cricket they wear club or team colours. In addition to the basic kit, some players wear protective gear to prevent injury caused by the ball, which is a hard, solid spheroid made of compressed leather with a slightly raised sewn seam enclosing a cork core which is layered with tightly wound string.
