Cricket A Game That Fascinates Millions Of People-www.haole15.com

Sports-and-Recreation Many countries outside of North America indulge in a major sport. These countries, places England and Wales, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and the Caribbean all play a popular game called "Cricket". Cricket is one of the most popular games in these regions, both for players and spectators. Cricket is a bat and ball sport that is in some ways similar to baseball, although there are significant differences between the two sports that at first glance may seem very similar. To the untrained eye that is unfamiliar with the sport of cricket the confusion can be great. There are many things .mon to both these games. Just as is the case in baseball, the game is divided into halves called ‘innings’. As is the case in baseball, during the ‘inning’ one team bats while the other team ‘fields’ and ‘bowls’. The team who bats first sets a target score that the other team attempts to match. The team that is bowling or playing the field attempts to limit the amount of points or "runs" that the opposing team scores. When a team is at bat they always have two batters (or batsmen) on the field. Innings do not change until 10 batsmen are declared out. This is referred to as "taking their wickets" and results in the end of the inning. At the end of the game the winner is the team with the highest amount of runs. If the losing team bats last, the team is said to have lost by (the difference in the runs of the winning team and the losing team). If the winning team is bats last, they have won by (the total amount of) runs". If neither team is ahead with more runs, the cricket match can end in a "tie" or "draw". One of the most obvious differences between baseball and cricket is the cricket bat. A cricket bat is shaped more like a wooden paddle, while a baseball bat is round and basically tube shaped. The cricket bat is made up of a long handle and a flat surface, very similar in appearance to a boat paddle. The batting style or stance is similar to the baseball stance, but not exactly the same. Pitching and fielding also bear similarities to baseball, with some subtle differences. When the batsman hits the ball in cricket it’s called a stroke (or shot). Occasionally, the batsmen will hit the ball with the side of the bat (hit with the edge of the bat) as opposed to hitting it with the flat surface. Using this method of hitting is called a "snick". Batting order is may be changed prior to the beginning of the game (in order to get a strategic advantage) but after the game starts the batting order is set. Some find that it is due to the subtle differences in strategy that make cricket a more .pelling sport to both participate in and follow recreationally. Indeed, these subtle differences make for a different experience in both playing and watching the game. Cricket is a great game that you will love and enjoy to play. You will have to over.e the steep learning curve of the jargon and nomenclature for the sport that is used to .municate the details of the game with enthusiasm. You should look into cricket if you are visiting one of the countries in which it is popular if you have an opportunity to visit these places. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
