Cricket is a sport that uses sticks to press on the ball to score. And this sport is extremely popular in Europe. That’s why we have Cricket betting.
In 16th century, it was created in England. Then in the 18th century, it was considered as a national sport.
After that, this sport became famous to other parts of the globe.
However, countries in Africa are banned from participating in the sport even though it is very popular in Africa because of its racial discrimination law.
International Cricket Council (ICC) is established in 1971.
The rules of Cricket are quite simple, it’s quite similar to baseball. We will list the rules and the simplest score calculation as follows:
Each team has 11 players, similar to football
Each team sends out 2 members for polishing. They will stand opposite each other. One person will hit the ball, standing in front of the opponent catch the ball. If the other teammates can not hit the ball, they will lost the opportunity into opponent’s hand
They have the duty to protect 3 wooden poles behind them (called the three pillars). If those pieces of wood fall to the ground then the batter will be disqualified.
Your team will send a pitcher to destroy the wooden piles behind the batter. Outside around the yard are the people responsible for catching the ball.
The rules are as simple as that. One team tries to protect 3 wooden stakes, the other tries to destroy it with a ball. The method of calculating the score is as follows:
The batter will hit the ball flying as far as possible. And the opposing players must capture the ball and return to the batting area.
When the ball flies away, the two players hitting the ball will switch positions. They have to run and run again to calculate points (called run). A successful swap is a run.
