The word “Cricket” probably comes from the word “Stick” which is a stick, a club that hits the ball. This is a traditional English sport from the Tudor period (1485 – 1605). At first, this was a children’s play in Southeast England, now Kent and Sussex. Later, adults played this sport and began to prevail in the 17th century.
Later, cricket was promoted by the British Empire’s expeditionary soldiers in colonial countries. So only countries that are British colonies, especially India and Pakistan, are popular with the sport.
Cricket is a team sport, each team has 11 members, playing on a circular field. This is a popular sport in England and some other countries. In Vietnam, it is also known as ball club or wooden bridge. The ball used in cricket and baseball is very similar, however cricket ball is usually a bit heavier.
Each side has 2 turns of play, each turn is divided into 11 sessions, 2 people from 2 teams will play against each other in each session. One team serves, the other team will hit the ball, and vice versa if all the players on the batting team are eliminated.
Each team appoints 2 people, standing at 2 ends holding sticks, each end has wicket, the other team will send out a bowler serve, the other members wait for the ball. The pitcher will throw how to break the other 3 goal posts. Stickman on the opponent’s side must protect their wicket. The returned ball needs to be recaptured to score points for the home team. Therefore, the 2-team player must always move to score goals, earn points and eliminate his opponents.
