Cricket Arrangements For Professional Batters

 


Cricket is one of the most popular sports in India and many other countries. Cricket is played by two teams of 11 players each on a flat ground in the middle of which there is a boundary line, each containing a wicket and two bails placed on top of three stumps. The match is usually played in a day and there are several matches being played every year. The matches are played in order of turn over.

The cricket field has to be well manicured so that the drainage can run properly and there is not much required for the ground to keep it green. This means that the cricket ground has to be very neat. Before the matches, all the players are briefed about the terms and conditions. The match is scheduled for a certain time on a particular day and that time cannot be changed. The match is made on the basis of an agreement reached between the two boards.

For every cricket match, there are certain specifications that have to be followed. There are rules that govern how the match should be played and there are certain rules regarding the number of overs. For the better understanding, cricketing forums are there where the experienced cricketing players try to provide their valuable inputs to the novice players. This helps the novice players to improve their own techniques so that the match remains interesting and the win count improves.

The cricket match starts with the batsman taking the field to face the opposition. He begins the match with his bat in hand and the ball already in his hands. The batsman has to hit the ball to the outside part of the wicket with the support of his bat so that the batsman runs towards the cricket ground with the ball in his hands. When he runs towards the cricket ground, he must pass through the wicket, touching either of the batsmen's bats or umpires boundaries. If any player runs past any boundary, the umpire stops the batsman and asks him to return to his boundaries.

After the batsman reaches the boundaries, the match referee awards runs to the batsmen or wickets to the wickets fallen by the batsmen. If a batsman receives more than two runs or wickets in one over, then he becomes out while his team mates to remain in the field. For the batsman who gets out, the other batsman takes over his position and the umpire announces a no-out declaration. If all the batsmen are out, the no-out announcement stands and the match is declared to be a draw.

The scoring runs is the most important thing in a cricket match. A match is won and lost by the number of runs scored. A batsman who scores more runs than the opponent wins the match. Likewise, the team with the most number of runs at the end of the match wins the match. Batting conditions, on the other hand, affect the result of the match as well.

There are two types of batting positions in cricket; the off stump and the wicket keeping positions. The number of off stump batsmen in a team indicates the number of batsmen who are eligible to bat at that time. Wicket keeping positions are usually filled by the batsmen who are in the frontline of the defence formation. The number of wickets kept by the batsmen in a team indicates the number of bowlers who can make an appearance in a match.

In the early days of the game, cricket players used to bat at the corners of the cricket ground. However, this trend has lost popularity with the passage of time as it was found that corner cricket places many risks. When batsmen started moving to the halfway line of the cricket field, the off stump was no longer a preferable place for the batsman to bat. Today, the match referee always keeps the batting areas close to the middle and off stump, so that batsmen can bat safely even when they move outside the boundaries of the field.
