Cricket was invented in England, supposedly by shepherds who herded their flock. Later on this game was shown benevolence by aristocrats, and now has the stature of being England's national game and it became a gentlemen's game. After a century now, cricket stands in the international arena, with a place of its own.

The question has been asked in the sports category.

with all the talk and discussion all around, either you are today's rip van winkle, or were in solitary existence in a remote area, or perhaps hibernating like a bear !

or is it some other answer with a deep meaning which you are seeking ?

seriously, please consult a book on sports to understand the intricacies about the game.

better still, join a club and play it to get the feel of it.

Cricket is a bat-and-ball sport contested by two teams, usually of eleven players each. A cricket match is played on a grass field, roughly oval in shape, in the centre of which is a flat strip of ground 22 yards (20.12 m) long, called a cricket pitch. A wicket, usually made of wood, is placed at each end of the pitch.

The bowler, a player from the fielding team, hurls a hard, fist-sized cricket ball from the vicinity of one wicket towards the other. The ball usually bounces once before reaching the batsman, a player from the opposing team. In defence of the wicket, the batsman plays the ball with a wooden cricket bat. Meanwhile, the other members of the bowler's team stand in various positions around the field as fielders, players who retrieve the ball in an effort to stop the batsman scoring, and if possible to get him or her out. The batsmanif he or she does not get outmay run between the wickets, exchanging ends with a second batsman (the "non-striker"), who has been waiting nea ...more
