Sports are a means of entertainment. Exercise is done automatically by sports. This makes the body strong and strong. Parent country sports are played in our country India.

Such as hockey, table tennis, chess, bowling, kabaddi and football. Cricket topped the national sports list due to being the most popular of all these sports. Cricket came to India from England. The British rulers brought this game to India to divert the attention of the Indian Nawabs and rulers from the state so that these rulers were busy in this game and could not pay any more attention to the Rajkarya.

Since then, its popularity is increasing day by day. Cricket matches are of two types. First one-day match and second five day match. In a one-day match, both teams throw certain overs and play. The decision is also made on the same day. The five-day match lasts longer. The number of overs is uncertain. The match also ends without a win-win decision.

Cricket is very popular in countries like India, Pakistan, England, West Indies, Sri Lanka, South-Africa, New Zealand etc. Rich-poor, leader-actors, students, employees, officers, male-female are all interested in this game. The popularity can be gauged from the fact that people keep transistors on their ears while walking and traveling on the roads. To know the score, they stand near the radio and TV. People are seen standing in long queues for tickets.

Cricket is played between two teams. There are eleven players in both teams. There are two Empire Harets, who act as decisors. The playing ground should be large, flat and clean. There are three wickets on each side of the pitch and their distance is 22 yards.

Ball and bat (bat) are required. The match of the game starts with a toss. The captain of both teams is called and tossed. The captain who wins depends on his desire to play or bowl first. At the start of the match, eleven players from the bowling team and two from the playing team descend on the field.

The bowler throws six balls in every over. The team gets one extra run and one extra ball to play if the offensive ball (bouncer) is thrown. The over in which no runs are scored is called 'maiden over'. If the bowler takes three consecutive wickets in three balls, it is called a 'hat trick'.

The player hits the six and empires both hands upward. When he gets a four, he rotates the hand forward and when out, raises the hand and raises one finger. No player opposes the decision of the judge. His decision is valid for all.

There is also a score board to count the runs which gives the exact position of the runs. Once one player is out, the other player reaches the ground. This sequence continues until ten players are dismissed. Then the other team plays. These days one day matches are the most popular.

In cricket, a player must be alert, agile, focused and careful at all times. To win, one has to struggle till the last moment. There are also cricket matches in our country for Ranji Trophy, Irani Cup etc. The Indian team showed its superiority by winning the 1983 World Cup.

Many records have been made in the cricket world and many have been broken. Sunil Gavaskar has broken the record of Don Bradman and Kapil Dev has written his name at the top in cricket history.
