    • Two bases (wickets) sixty feet apart in the middle of the field
    • Two formats
      • Test cricket (5 days) – 2 innings per side (one innings is 10 outs)
      • One day – 1 inning per side (one innings is 10 outs or when maximum pitches have been thrown)
    • Team scoring more runs wins

    • Progress of Play
    • Captains toss to decide to field or bat
    • The fielding team of 11 takes the field
    • Wicketkeeper (catcher) is allowed to wear protective gear
    • Two batsman (batters) are sent in, one for each base
    • Bowler (pitcher) bowls (pitches) from one wicket (base) to the other
    • After 6 balls (pitches), catcher moves behind the first pitcher’s base and another bowler makes 6 pitches from the opposite end. Each set of 6 pitches is called an over.

    • Batting and Scoring Runs
    • The batsman (batter) can hit in any direction and can run when he chooses to.
    • A batsman can score by hitting the ball and running safely between the two wickets (bases)
    • Once across (from one base to the other) is one run (single)
    • There and back is two runs (double)
    • A line drive that reaches the fence scores four runs
    • A hit that flies over the fence like a home run is six runs

    • Common Ways of Getting Out
    • Any of the three stumps marking the batsman’s base are hit by the pitcher, the batsman is bowled (struck out)
    • The ball is hit into a fielder’s hand without touching the ground, the batsman is caught (pop fly)
    • The batsman uses any part of the body other than the bat to stop the ball from hitting the stumps, he is out Leg Before Wicket also called LBW (interference)
    • If the two batsmen are running between the wickets (bases) and a fielder touches the base before the batsman crosses the safe line, he is run out (tagging or out at base)
