Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played on a field with a central rectangular pitch. Each team takes its turn to bat and tries to score runs. The bowler bowls the ball to the batsman who tries to hit it away from the fielders, run to the other end of the pitch and score a run. He continues until he is out. When ten batsmen are out, or a specified number of overs of six balls have been bowled, the teams switch roles and the fielding team comes in to bat.
Cricket is an intricate and varied, non-contact game - everyone loves the sound of leather on willow! It's a team sport, but batting, bowling and fielding rely on individual skills. Traditionally, it's played on a field with eleven players each side but there are new related games, like Twenty20 and indoor Cricket, that appeal to everyone. A great outdoor, sociable game - for beach or park cricket, just grab a bat, a soft ball and stumps.
