Cricket matches are usually played between two teams, with each team taking turns fielding and batting. The “home” team is the one who takes the first pitch, while the “away” team is the one who takes the first pitch in the field.
The aim of the game is for the batting team to score as many runs as it can before the fielding team dismisses every batsman. Each team has 11 players. The winning team is the one that scores the most runs throughout the course of the game.
Each team gets a turn at bat and a turn at fielding throughout each of the innings that make up a cricket match. In a regular game, each side gets two innings, but there are times when there may be more.
The fielding team will attempt to dismiss the batsmen by either catching the ball after it has been struck by the bat or by hitting the wickets with the ball while the batsman is in his crease when they are on the field. Additionally, the batting side’s fielding unit will attempt to stop them from scoring runs.
The two batters will alternate facing the bowler and attempting to score runs by hitting the ball and advancing between the wickets when the batting team is at the crease. With each run, the team’s score rises. When a particular number of overs or 10 batters have been dismissed, the batting team’s innings comes to a conclusion.
The fielding team will alternate bowlers for each over as they try to remove the batting team’s batsmen. If a fielder catches the ball after it makes contact with the batsman’s body but is not struck by the bat, the fielding team may also declare a run out or stumping.
The team that scores the most runs at the end of the game is deemed the winner, and in the event of a tie, the team with the highest first-inning total is deemed the victor.
