Of all the outdoor games, my most favorite is cricket. This game has been popularly accepted in India in recent years since India’s good performance in international cricket.
The game of Cricket is played on a large oval-shaped ground. Each team comprises of eleven players. After the toss, players of one team goes for batting and the players of the other team bowl in turn. Also, there are fielders who stop balls and return it. The batmen starts batting and defend the deliveries of the bowlers.
The game may be of a One-day match or a Test-match for five days. The duration for test-matches are generally five days. In a test match, each team gets two innings to play. In a One-day match (also limited overs cricket), each team typically gets 50 overs to play. In case of Twenty20 format, the team bowls for 20 overs each. The Twenty20 cricket format is also played for one day and the results are declared on the same day. The team that scores more runs wins the match.
The captains of both the teams play significant role in such a game. There are two umpires whose opinion and decision are to be accepted by the players of both the teams.
Like other games, cricket is also a toilsome game and the practice of it keeps the players fit and healthy physically. Excellent team spirit and sense of discipline can be developed by joining and practicing this game. Deep concentration and determination are necessary to gain perfection. This game is regarded as the valuable and dignified one.
