Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a field at the center of which is a 20-meter (22-yard) pitch with a wicket at each end, each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps. The batting side scores runs by striking the ball bowled at the wicket with the bat, while the bowling and fielding side tries to prevent this and dismiss each player (so they are "out"). Means of dismissal include being bowled, when the ball hits the stumps and dislodges the bails, and by the fielding side either catching the ball after it is hit by the bat, but before it hits the ground, or by hitting a wicket with the ball before a batsman has scored. When ten players have been dismissed, the innings ends and the teams swap roles. The game is adjudicated by two umpires, aided by a third umpire and match referee in international matches. They communicate with two off-field scorers who record the match's statistical information.There are various formats ranging from Twenty20, played over a few hours with each team batting for a single innings of 20 overs, to Test matches, played over five days with unlimited overs and the teams each batting for two innings of unlimited length. Traditionally cricketers play in all-white kit, but in limited overs cricket they wear club or team colors. In addition to the basic kit, some players wear protective gear to prevent injury caused by the ball, which is a hard, solid spheroid made of compressed leather with a slightly raised sewn seam enclosing a cork core which is layered with tightly wound string.Cricket is one of many games in the "club ball" sphere that basically involve hitting a ball with a hand-held implement; others include baseball, golf, hockey, tennis, squash, badminton and table tennis. It is believed that cricket originated as a children's game in the south-eastern counties of England, sometime during the medieval period.Cricket has close historical ties with Australian rules football and many players have competed at top level in both sports. The Melbourne Football Club was founded the following year, 1858, and cricketers were prominent in early Australian football teams. The oldest surviving set of cricket laws were drawn up in 1744.Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played on a cricket field (see image, right) between two teams of eleven players each. The field is usually circular or oval in shape and the edge of the playing area is marked by a boundary, which may be a fence, part of the stands, a rope, a painted line or a combination of these; the boundary must if possible be marked along its entire length.The pitch is a rectangular area of the field on which the batsman stands and in which he scores runs. The pitch is marked with a crease on each side of which is a set of stumps, on top of which two bails are placed. The stumps are placed 22 yards (20 m) apart. The two sets of three stumps that form the wickets are placed along the length of the pitch, with the two outer stumps, which are called the off stumps, at an angle of about 27 degrees from the batsman's viewpoint, and the middle stump, the leg stump, at an angle of about 54 degrees.The space between the two sets of stumps is called the pitch. The pitch is also marked with a line drawn or painted on it, called the crease, which is used to determine whether a delivery is fair or not. The crease runs for the length of the pitch, from the popping crease at the striker's end to the bowling crease at the other end, where the bowler stands.The game is played with a cricket ball, which is a hard, solid sphere made of compressed leather with a slightly raised sewn seam enclosing a cork core which is layered with tightly wound string. The ball is slightly larger than a tennis ball and is very hard.The ball is bowled at the batsman by the bowler, who must be one of the fielding team. The batsman, who is also one of the fielding team, tries to hit the ball with his bat so that he can score runs. The other members of the fielding team try to stop the batsman from scoring runs and/or to get him out.A run is scored when the batsman hits the ball with his bat and runs to the other end of the pitch. The batsman must run when the ball is within the boundary of the field, and must touch the ground behind the crease with either his bat or his body to score a run. If the ball hits the boundary, four runs are scored. If the ball hits the ground before it reaches the boundary, six runs are scored.A batsman can also score runs by hitting the ball over the boundary without it touching the ground, which is called a boundary. If the ball hits the boundary on the full, six runs are scored. If the ball does not hit the boundary on the full, four runs are scored.A batsman can be out in several ways, the most common being bowled, caught, leg before wicket (lbw), run out and stumped.Bowled: The batsman is out if the ball hits the stumps and dislodges the bails.Caught: The batsman is out if he hits the ball with his bat and the ball is caught by a fielder before it hits the ground.Leg before wicket (lbw): The batsman is out if the ball hits him on the body and would have hit the stumps if he was not there.Run out: The batsman is out if he is running between the wickets and a fielder hits the stumps with the ball, dislodging the bails.Stumped: The batsman is out if the wicket-keeper catches the ball before it hits the ground and then stumps the batsman with the stumps.A batsman can also be out hit wicket, handling the ball, obstructing the field, double hit, timed out, hit the ball twice or retired out.The game is played in innings, with each team taking turns to bat and bowl. The team that bats first is said to be in the "first innings", and the team that bats second is said to be in the "second innings".The team that bats first tries to score as many runs as possible, while the team that bats second tries to score more runs than the first team, or to at least score enough runs to avoid losing.A match is won by the team that scores the most runs, or the team that scores more runs than the other team, or the team that scores enough runs to avoid losing.The legality of cricket betting varies from country to country.
