Cricket is usually played on grass. Golf is a cricket oval in the center of which is a strip of land 22 yards in length (20.12 meters), called the pitch (pitch).
At each end of the pitch stuck in the ground three columns, on top of which are based on two small wooden crossbar. This design is called viket (wicket). Each viketa with bats in the hands of the players are kicking team. A player of the serving team, called the bowler throws the ball, being close to one of viketov, towards the other, while trying to get into viket. Kicking team player standing next to viketom, trying to protect viket using bat.
If the kicker hits the ball, he can run to the opposite viketu. Player who is standing at the other viketa runs toward him, trying to take the place hitter. Each point earns jogging kicking team. The serving team is trying to catch the ball and return it to one of viketov. If the ball hit the viket, at a time when at least one of the traveling players is between viketami (behind the line), then the player is running out of the game, and his place is taken by another player kicking team. The striker is out of the game as if he could not defend his viket from the ball at the time the ball was caught or gave the command, before he hit the ground.
When 10 players kicking team out of the game, the teams swapped. If both teams otpodavali once, inningz ends. Cricket match usually consists of one or two inningzov.
