It is quite simple.

2 teams of 11 players.
1 fields the other bats.
6 balls bowled per over then they change ends.
Object is to score as many runs as possible,by running between the wickets 1 run for each time,hitting the ball outside of the boundary with it bouncing 4 runs,without bouncing 6 runs.
Team with the most runs wins!

There are a group of guys that play cricket at a nearby soccer field, but I dont know how to play. I looked it up and it sounds similar to baseball.

A team comprises 11 men. Two batsmen are "in" play at one time. Their aim is to hit the ball as far as possible, and score points (runs) by running the 25 meters between two sets of upright poles set in the ground (wickets) while the fielding team chase the ball.

If the batsman hits the ball past the boundary of the field, he automatically scores 6 runs. The aim of the fielders is to get the batsmen "out" by: hitting the wickets by bowling the ball past the batsman's guard, by catching the ball after the batsman has hit it or by hitting the wicket with the ball while the batsmen are running between wickets.

After the batting team are all "out" the fielding team come "in." The team that wins is the one with the most runs.

I suppose it sounds hard but it isn't,if you play it once or try to see it on the T.V you will see how simple a game it is.

It does sound hard. The best to see how the game works is to actually see it played. Fortunately I have like 10 different sports channels on my cable so I'll check if they show games of cricket to see for myself.

TRD, have you played? How do you keep track of the length, are there innings? What is the average score?

TRD, have you played?


Yes in the school team many years ago and a local side.

The Pitch is marked out (some are bigger than others) in a oval shape mainly.Around the pitch they put a boundary if the ball crosses it with at least one bounce it's 4 runs,no bounce 6 runs.
In a one day match there is one innings per team,3-5 day match two innings per team.The strip in the middle of the pitch is where you bat and bowl.



What is the average score?

There is no average score as such,but in a one day match over 250 runs is very good.

Maybe you should start a fantasy cricket league TRD, that way you'll have the advantage of watching the games.
