Transcript of "Cricket"

  1. 1. CRICKET
  2. 2. Cricket is a Bat and BallCRICKET game played between two teams of11 players on a field, at the centre of which is a rectangular22-yard long pitch. One team bats, trying to score as manyruns as possible while the other team bows and fields, tryingto dismiss the batsmen and thus limit the runs scored by thebatting team. A run is scored by the striking batsman hittingthe ball with his bat, running to the opposite end of the pitchand touching the crease there without being dismissed. Theteams switch between batting and fielding at the end of aninnings. Cricket was first played in southern England in the16th century. By the end of the 18th century, it had developedinto the national sport of England. The expansion of theBritish Empire led to cricket being played overseas and bythe mid-19th century the first international matches werebeing held. The ICC, the games governing body, has ten fullmembers. The game is played particularly in Australasia, theIndian subcontinent, the West Indies, Southern Africa andEngland. The objective of each team is to score more runsthan the other team. In Test cricket, it is necessary to scorethe most runs and dismiss the opposition twice in order towin the match, which would otherwise be drawn.
  3. 3. The history of cricket to 1725 traces the Sport’s development from itsperceived origins to the stage where it had become a major sport inEngland and had been introduced to other countries. The earliestdefinite reference to cricket occurs in 1598 and makes clear that thesport was being played c.1550, but its true origin is a mystery. Thesparse information available about crickets early years suggests that itwas originally a childrens game. Then, at the beginning of the 17thcentury, it was taken up by working men. During the reign of CharlesI, the gentry took an increased interest as patrons and occasionally asplayers. By the time of the Hanoverian succession, investment incricket had created the professional player, thus establishing the sportas a popular social activity in London and the south of England.Meanwhile, English colonists had introduced cricket to North Americaand the West Indies; and the sailors and traders of the East IndiaCompany had taken it to the Indian subcontinent.
  4. 4. PITCH AND CREASESThe pitch is 22 yards (20 m) or one chain in lengthbetween the wickets and is 10 feet (3.0 m) wide. It is a flatsurface and has very short grass that tends to be wornaway as the game progresses. The "condition" of thepitch has a significant bearing on the match and teamtactics are always determined with the state of thepitch, both current and anticipated, as a deciding factor. A bowling crease is 8 feet 8 inches (2.64 m) long with themiddle stump placed dead centre. The popping creasehas the same length, is parallel to the bowling crease andis 4 feet (1.2 m) in front of the wicket. The return creasesare perpendicular to the other two; they are adjoined tothe ends of the popping crease and are drawn throughthe ends of the bowling crease to a length of at least 8feet (2.4 m).
  5. 5. WICKETSEach wicket consists ofthree wooden stumpsplaced in a straight lineand surmounted by twowooden crosspiecescalled bails; the totalheight of the wicketincluding bails is 28.5inches (720 mm) and thecombined width of thethree stumps is 9 inches(230 mm).
  6. 6. CRICKET BALL Hard, cork and string ball, covered with leather. A bitlike a baseball (in size and hardness), but the leathercovering is thicker and joined in twohemispheres, not in a tennis ball pattern. The seamis thus like an equator, and the stitching is raisedslightly. The circumference is between 224 and 229millimeters (8.81 to 9.00 inches), and the ball weighsbetween 156 and 163 grams (5.5 to 5.75 ounces).Traditionally the ball is dyed red, with the stitchingleft white. Nowadays white balls are also used, forvisibility in games played at night under artificiallighting.
  7. 7. CRICKET BATBlade made of willow, flat on oneside, humped on the other forstrength, attached to a sturdycane handle. The blade has amaximum width of 108millimeters (4.25 inches) and thewhole bat has a maximum lengthof 965 millimeters (38 inches).

  9. 9. TEAM STRUCTURE A team consists of eleven players. Depending on hisor her primary skills, a player may be classified as aspecialist batsman or bowler. A well-balanced teamusually has five or six specialist batsmen and four orfive specialist bowlers. Teams nearly always includea specialist wicket-keeper because of the importanceof this fielding position. Each team is headed by acaptain who is responsible for making tacticaldecisions such as determining the batting order, theplacement of fielders and the rotation of bowlers. A player who excels in both batting and bowling isknown as an all-rounder. One who excels as abatsman and wicket-keeper is known as a "wicket-keeper/batsman", sometimes regarded as a type ofall-rounder. True all-rounders are rare as most
