Sorry, wrong again!

match structure
Match structure
  • The toss
    • The two opposing captains toss a coin before the match
    • the captain winning the toss chooses either to bat or bowl first
  • Overs
    • Each innings is divided into overs
    • each consisting of six consecutive legal deliveries bowled by the same bowler
match structure15
Match structure
  • End of an innings
  • An innings is completed if
    • Ten out of eleven batsmen are 'out' (dismissed) — the team are all out.
    • The team has only one batsman left who can bat (the others being incapacitated either through injury, illness or absence) — again, the team are all out.
    • The team batting last reaches the score required to win the match.
    • The predetermined number of overs are bowled (in a one-day match only, usually 50 overs).
    • A captain declares his team's innings closed (this does not apply to one-day limited over matches)
match structure16
Match structure
  • Playing time
  • Typically, two innings matches are played over three to five days with at least six hours of cricket being played each day.
  • One innings matches are usually played over one day for six hours or more.
  • There are formal intervals on each day for lunch and tea, and shorter breaks for drinks, where necessary.
  • There is also a short interval between innings.
playing time
Playing time
  • The game is only played in dry weather.
  • the game needs to be played in daylight
    • good enough for a batsman to be able to see the ball
  • Play is therefore halted during rain (but not usually drizzle) and when there is bad light.
  • Batsmen strike the ball from the batting crease, with the flat surface of a wooden bat.
run scoring
Run scoring
  • To score a run
    • a striker must hit the ball and run to the opposite end of the pitch
    • while his non-striking partner runs to his end
    • To register a run, both runners must touch the ground behind the popping crease with either their bats or their bodies
  • If the striker hits the ball well enough
    • the batsmen may double back to score two or more runs
run scoring20
Run scoring
  • run out
    • If a fielder knocks the bails off the stumps with the ball
    • while no batsman is grounded behind the nearest popping crease
    • the nearest batsman is run out
  • If the ball goes over the boundary, then four runs are scored, or six if the ball has not bounced
  • A bowler delivers the ball toward the batsmen
  • pace bowlers
  • spin bowlers
dismissal of a batsman
Dismissal of a batsman
  • ten ways in which a batsman may be dismissed
    • Caught
    • Bowled
    • Leg before wicket (lbw)
    • Run out
    • Stumped
    • Hit wicket
    • Handled the ball
    • Hit the ball twice
    • Obstructing the field
    • Timed out
  • Fielders assist the bowlers in preventing runs
    • either by taking catches to dismiss a batsman
    • or by intercepting the ball and returning it to the pitch
    • The wicket-keeper is the only fielder permitted to wear gloves
    • A fielder may stop the ball with any part of their body
wicket keeper
  • a specialist fielder who stands behind the batsman's wicket throughout the game.
  • to gather deliveries that the batsman fails to hit
    • to prevent them running into the outfield
    • which would enable batsmen to score byes
