  6. 6. RULES OF THE GAME The Toss -A cricket match begins with the toss of a coin. One of the team captains callsthe toss. The winner of the toss may elect to either bat or field first. At the start of an innings, all eleven players of the fielding team go out to field, twoplayers of the batting team go out to bat. The remainder of the batting team wait off thefield for their turn to bat. Each batsman wears protective gear and carries a cricket bat. Batting team score “runs” – The simplest way for a batsman to score a run is by the striker hitting the ball such thatboth batsmen can run from one end of the pitch to the other without either batsmangetting out: the batsmen effectively exchanging positions, so the striking batsmanbecomes the non-striker, and vice versa. The batsmen may be able to run up and down the pitch more than once, crossing eachtime, to score two, three or more runs. A batsman can also score four or six runs by hitting the ball to or overthe boundary (four if it strikes the ground before the boundary; six if it crosses theboundary in the air without striking the ground), Fielding team aims to takes “wickets” or constrain batting team from taking runs. For a batsman to be dismissed by being bowled, run out, stumped, caught, LBW, or hitwicket. Who wins the Game Team scoring the most “runs” wins the match.
