At a very young age, kids – especially boys start asking their parents for a bat and ball. But which game is this usually associated with? Cricket of course!
Basics of Cricket
It is a bat and ball game which is played in between two teams made up of 11 players each. It is played on a field which has a 22yard pitch in the center. It is considered to be the second most popular game or sport after football. Every team takes a turn at batting, attempts to score runs and the other team takes a turn at fielding. Every turn is called an innings.
In professional cricket, the game length varies from overs of 20 which we call T20 per side to Test Cricket which is usually played over a period of five days. ICC or International Cricket Council maintains the Laws of Cricket. For additional Standards and Playing Conditions for test matches or One day Internationals it is monitored by the Marylebone Cricket Club or the MCC.
The T20 has especially become so popular that every person in every nook and corner is familiar with it. Due to the successful opening ceremony of Euro T20 Slam on 30 April 2019 in the city of Dublin, Ireland. The game will broadcast on almost every Sport Television channel; even Radio Broadcasts. Not to forget the internet. In fact, the Euro T20 Slam live channel is another source for fast and current information.
