Cricket is a typical English sport which is not played in Belgium much. This comes because the game rules are this way complicated. I will try them explain as well as possible .
The cricketveld are ovaalvormig and are delimited by a pulse polsdik rope that in the grass lie. Dimensions of the field have a doorsnede of approximately 140 meters. In the middle of the field there is no grass, or very short grass in a rectangle. That area is called pitch. This dimension to be 20.12 at 3.05 meter. On the short sides of the pitch is itself knee-high houten constructions, which become wickets called. Whole of wickets and pitch the wicket are called. The largest part of the game takes place on and at the wicket. The wickets to exist from three erect paaltjes which with such case-bay on a row have been persevered that the ball is not possible there. Paaltjes are called stumps. The tops of it are bridged by two small houtjes: bails . The this way arisen construction is this way unstable that the bails fall already at a small contact of the wicket on the ground.
On the pitch some lines have been drawn, which creases mentioned. They give to where wants he does not have be himself the batter gestumped become, where the bowler the ball must throw and between what must be run to make runs. Game course
The cricketbat link-convex back, Right the battle side, generally made wilgenhout.
Professional cricketwedstrijd go approximately as follows:
The game goes in battle turns. In the most of games each team one has battle turn. Each battle turn lasts until 10 there of 11 battle people (batsman) from, or is a quantity balls by team is agreed. A group of six balls is concerning.
the battle turn has been concluded as: 10 of 11 battle people has been eliminated or the number has been agreed overs it has been played or if the battle team decides stop with beat.
The game has two adjudicators, one of them establish himself behind of the wickets (on the side where gebowld become). The other one keeps the second wicket in the eye as from the they side. The leaders to toss to bowl be possible decide if they want profits firstly or.
The red cricketbal such as use for test matches
The team which beats firstly, the battle plough, sends then the field which will beat first to two players. They form the first partnership of the game. They have both a beater and have necessary body protection against the ball.
The team which must throw out firstly, puts all 11 man on the field. One of them become wicketkeeper called, he is the some of the bowlingteam that hand shoes and leg guards aanheeft. This is because he places himself exactly behind the battle man. He has a specialist role, because he the gebowlde ball must catch if that battle man passes is. He is also generally the player responsible for stumpen of battle men.
Another player of the bowling team is bowler. He is the man who throws the ball to the battle man. The bowler overgooit 6 time (correctly) direction battle man, this serial of 6 is called. After concerning one changes of side where one throws and must the bowling team new bowler indicate. A team needs therefore several bowlers, also one has several types bowlers (fast and spider bowlers). In a team is generally 4 to 5 good bowlers in house, which varies each other. Concerning can count sometimes more than six balls. This is the case when the bowler have thrown a bad ball , name lyno-ball or wide'. In both cases get the plough to battle extra manage again and must the ball be thrown.
The task of the battle men is as many score runs. They do this beating the ball and at the same time to the overkant to run. Then they one have manages, they can stop with to run or again to the overkant run two or even several runs score. If the ball is this way beaten that he concerns the rope then scores the battle man 4 runs (boundery) without being finished the danger. He beats the ball which goes out without touching the ground then 6 runs is granted.
A battle man can as long as to beat if he wants as long as he is not finished . Can finish in some manners:
1.: a battle man is finished because the ball is directly caught after he has beaten the ball (most attentive)
2.thrown out : the bowler throw out the battle man by throwing the ball against the wickets
3.ball touches: a battle man cannot touch the ball intentional with the hands with as an aim of preventing that the ball would touch the wicket (seldom attentive)
4.led: a player who is not concerning the crease and is wicket break is from
5.uitgebaild: a battle man beat whom for the crease stands and misses the ball can uitgebaild by the wicketkeeper as the wicketkeeper the ball catches and the bails to be removed
6.two times beat: a battle man cannot beat two times, he can use, however, its beater to stop if the ball the those wicket would break
7.wicket touch: a battle man who is wicket touches and the bails leave falls are from. This rule does not apply if this happens because he jumps away for a ball which descends on its body or to that prevent he is led
8.time-wasting: a new battle man has three minutes for on the field at to come
Batsman are moreover just from if he leaves or after a committed error himself the field, or after the field plough the adjudicator asks for a decision. Such a request is called appeal and can be done by each field player to the adjudicator by the question: How's That?
If the adjudicator notes that a player is according to the laws from, but nobody of the players seems notice it, then the adjudicator keeps its mouth. This is the consequence of the law which an adjudicator takes a decision exclusively on application. When an adjudicator remunerates appeal, he does that putting up its we finger . When he finds that the player is not from he does not put up its finger and says he loudly and clearly: not out and can shake thereby its head.
If a player from is, becomes he replace by a plough half-measure. Until there 10 players from its continue continue collection. If collection is done of side it is changed and it is played.
The game finishes if also the second team is ready with its battle turn, or the moment the second team has scored more runs than the first team.
