Cricket T20 at Commonwealth Games 2022
There are few countries who play cricket but the craze among these countries is tremendous. But many viewers from other countries might be clueless or unaware of what cricket is. So for them, let’s brush up the rules in a nutshell.
Cricket is a sport played between two teams with 11 players on each side. The toss is conducted and the winner of the toss decides to bowl or bat first.
The fielding team has 11 players on the field while the batting team has two batters on the field at a time.
The fielding team has assigned bowlers who bowl to the batters and try to get them out. While batters try to score as many runs as possible on their bowling. The T20 match has an inning of 20 overs each.
Since these are T20 matches, both teams have 20 overs to score as many runs as possible. The over consists of 6 legal deliveries.
The batting team has 10 wickets max. If the team loses its 10 wickets before 20 overs are completed, the innings come to end.
So how can a bowler take a wicket? Well, the batter is termed out if the batter misses the ball and it hits the stumps, or if the batter hits the ball and the ball is caught by the fielder before the ball touches the ground or if the fielder returns the ball to the wicket before the batter completes the run.
The team which scores more runs than their opposition wins the match.
