Hey all. During this insanity that we’ve been forced to endure AND all AMERICAN sports abandoning their fans, I’ve looked elsewhere for sports entertainment. One of those sources is CRICKET. I know it’s weird, but I’m our cable system I was going thru channels looking for something to watch a couple months ago and saw we have a channel that is 24/7 Cricket and cricket highlights. So I watched a bit. It’s NOT baseball and doesn’t have the excitement that other big sports have, but it is something different. I watched videos on it and read a bit and feel like I have the general idea down, but there are a few things I need explained before I can fully know what’s going on. I hope someone can help me. If you do t want to publicly post, feel free to PM me. Here’s some questions I have. 1. The Bowler is limited to 6 consecutive throws and then another bowler comes in for his 6. Is that right? If so, can they just keep going back and forth with their 6 rolls each or after both roll their 6, do 2 new bowlers come in and take over? 2. When the batsman swings and barely makes contact and the ball barely travels 10 yards or so and no one runs back and forth, are there any pointS gained by the batsman’s team? Does every ball that’s hit and is in the playing field score points even if the 2 batsmen don’t move and just stand there? 3. Does the bowler have to run to the line to deliver the ball or can he just stand there like a baseball pitcher and deliver the ball to the batter? 4. The length of the games is determined by how many OVERS are set, right? An OVER is a complete series of 6 throws by the bowler...is that right? In this shortened version they have 20 overs. Does that mean there’s going to be 120 deliveries of the ball to the other team and they have to score as much as they can in those 120 deliveries. Is that correct? 5. What is a WICKET? It appears as a wicket is the equivalent of an OUT by the batsman. Right?? 6. Last question. There are 2 batsmen that come out at a time. They are on opposite ends. Does the first batsman hit until he makes an out and then the other takes over and does the same? Is that right? Or, can they swing a couple times and decide to swap places and the other bats for a bit? Does the batsman that’s up, stay batting until he makes an out and then the other comes in and starts his batting? Say the first batsman has to face Bowler A, but he never has done any good against Bowler A and he’d rather bat against Bowler B. Can he just swing a couple times to see how he’s doing and then I’d he wants, swap out to the other Batsman until it’s his turn? Sorry for all the questions. Just trying to understand this stuff better. Damned pro sports in this country is RUINED forever. I’ll never watch that garbage again.
