[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 and basically starting

with three or four years old so I

decided from the games ready anybody the

game of cricket is played between two

teams of 11 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 heating

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 from 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 work each

batsman will need pads gloves and a bet

he 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 bat

meanwhile the opposition positions all

11 of 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 ten of the 11 batsmen

are out since the last player to go in

cannot fight alone

the team's batting in is is over

so the first innings is finished when

either 10 batsmen are out or the limited

number of balls in the second innings

routines will change roles the other

team will become the burning 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 wicked they cross

Midway and when they have both safely

reach the other side one run is scored

if the ball is 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 friars

the baller his 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

pads 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 rigor 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 way 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 spirit that cricket brings

[Applause]
