What is cricket?

Cricket is a team sport that is popular in many countries in the world, especially in the United Kingdom. The popularity of this sport is only behind football. Cricket has about 2.5 billion players and followers. Cricket plays between two teams, 11 players each, on a circular pitch.

The purpose of a match is two take turns, a serve, and a batting team. After all batting team players are disqualified, one team will switch to pitch, and the other team will enter the field to be a batting team. This sport does not have a deadline like a football, but plays until the game is won or lost, so some matches last for 5 days.

The French word crique related to a wooden pillar is also believed to be the origin of it.
