What the rules are
- Each team is made out of 11 players.
- The bowler must bowl 6 legal deliveries to constitute an over.
- The game of cricket has two umpires stood at either end off the wicket. The umpires then must count how many bowls that have been in the over and whether the batsman is out from the decision that the over team has made or the umpires have made and also check that the bowler has bowled a legal delivery.
- A batsmen can be given out by either being bowled by the ball hitting the stumps, caught when the fielders catch the ball without it bouncing on the ground, LBW that stands for Leg Before Wicket. It has to hit the leg of the batsmen and have an angel of a line with the wicket, when they are run out when the person who bats it tries to run to the opposite side of where the other batsmen was and when one of the fielders throw the ball at the wicket and makes the top of it fall off, hit wicket when the batter swings his bat and touches the wicket and then it the top of the wicket falls off, Handled ball when the batsman handles the cricket ball on purpose, timed out when the player fails to reach the crease within 30 seconds of the previous batsmen leaving the field, hit the ball twice when the batsmen hit the ball twice with the bat and obstruction when the batsmen purposely prevents the fielders not to get the ball to catch it or get them ran out.
- Test cricket is played over 5 days where each team has two innings or two chances to bat and bowl.
- The scores are then cumulative and the team with the most runs after the innings are the winners.
- One day cricket is played in 50 overs. Each has 50 overs to bat and bowl before swapping and doing the previous discipline. The team with the most runs will win the game.
- International games will have a further two umpires called the third fourth umpire. These are in place for the review any decisions that the on field umpires are unable to make.
- The fielding team must have one designated wicketkeeper who is only person who’s allowed to wear pads and gloves on field. The wicket keeper stands on the opposite side of where the bowler that can catch the ball and the other batsman that is not batting.
A collared shirt with a long or short sleeves depending on the climate or personal preference.

- Leg pads, worn by the the two batsmen and the wicketkeeper, used to protect the shinbone against the impact of the ball. The wicketkeeping pads are slightly different from the batsmen’s. Fielder that are fielding near the batsmen may wear shin guard (interval) as well.
