How to play cricket: The Basics


[Music] basically anybody can play cricket any size any edge any any person boys and girls I’ve seen players play cricket from 75 years old basically starting from three or four years old translated from the game throwing anybody the game of cricket is played between two teams of eleven players each there are two umpires and their decision is final there are two innings in each game in the first innings the batting or hitting team tries to score as many runs for points as possible within a limited number of balls being bowled or thrown to them by the opposition in the second innings our position becomes the batting team and within the same amount of limited balls being bowled to them they need to try and score more runs than their opposition scored in the first innings let’s see how these innings were each batsman will need pads gloves and a bet you may choose to wear a helmet to the batting side we’ll send in their first two batsmen the remaining nine players will wait off the field for their turn to back meanwhile there are position positions all 11 are their players on the field and they are known as the fielding side the goal is to Bowl and field in such a way that the batting side cannot score too many runs or to cause the batsman to go out the batting side will always have two batsmen working together by running and batting this is how grants are score [Applause] if one batsman is out he leaves the field and the next batsman goes in to join his teammate this continues until 10 of the 11 bucks when are out since the last player to go in cannot fight alone the team’s batting in is is motive up so the first innings is finished went neither 10 batsmen are out or the limited number of balls in the second innings the team’s will change roles the other team will become the bunting side and their goal is to beat the score from the first innings the now fielding side will defend their first inning score by trying to get all the opposition batsman out or by preventing the batsman from scoring too many runs in order for the team to get any score both batsmen must run to the opposite weaker they cross Midway and when they have both safely reach the other side one run is scored if the ball was hit harder they can run back and forth to score a few runs if the ball is hit so hard that it reaches the boundary the batsman doesn’t need to run he is automatically awarded four runs similarly if the ball goes over the boundary without touching the ground he is awarded six runners [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] the Balinese teammates are trying to get the batsman out in the following ways there is a wicket three wooden sticks behind the batsman when the ball from the ball that hits the wicket the batsman is out he has been bald when the batsman hits the ball into the air and one of the field inside players catches it the batsman is out he has been caught [Music] [Music] [Music] when the batsman steps too far forward to hit the ball and misses it the wicket keeper can catch the ball and hit the wicket before the batsman gets safely back the batsman is out he has been stumped while the two batsmen are running to the opposite wicket a player from the field inside can try to hit the wickets with the ball if the batsman has not safely reached the wicket he is out he has been run out if the ball from the baller hits the parts of the batsman and the umpire believes that the ball would have hit the wicket if not for the pad then the umpire gives the batsman out LBW leg before wicket [Music] a lot of things make cricket fun to play I think one of the best things is it’s a team sport and you get to interact with your friends on the sports field in a competitive win in the competitive environment and also you put your skills against the best of other teams and you just are able to compare yourself to what the risks that people are doing I think at the end of the day the competition is the camaraderie and it’s the fun spur that cricket brings [Applause] [Music]
