Welcome to the greatest game

cricket is the most popular sports in the world

some of the basic rules of cricket:
Cricket is a game played between two teams, generally of 11 members. In essence, it is single combat, in which an individual batsman battle against an individual bowler, who has helpers known as fielders. The bowler propels the ball with a straight arm from one end to another end of the 22-yard pitch in an attempt to dismiss the batsman by hitting a target known as the wicket at the other end, or by causing the batsman to hit the ball into the air into a fielders hand, or by inducing one of a number of other indiscretions. The batsman attempts to defend the wicket with the bat and to score runs  the currency of the game  by striking the ball to the boundary, or far enough from the fielders to allow the batsman to run to the other end of the pitch before the ball returned. At least two bowlers must take turns, from alternating ends also, there are always two batsmen on the field, each to take a turn as required. When all but one of the batting team have been dismissed  or after an agreed period  the teams roles are reversed. After all the players required to bat on both sides have done so either once or twice the total number of runs accumulated determines the winner. But sometimes there isnt one. 
Although there are many more rules in cricket than in many other sport its a most rewarding game.
