I love playing Cricket. When I was in India last year during my summer holidays, I used to play Cricket with my cousins. Whenever, I get time, and if it is sunny outside, I play Cricket with my family and friends in my backyard.
Cricket is a very popular game in the world. It started in England (U.K.) during the 17th century, and then other countries in the world started playing it professionally.
Cricket is played with a bat and ball between two teams and there are 11 members in each team. This game is played on an oval field. There is an Umpire in Cricket, who has the right to judge the game. He also makes decisions in the game. An Umpire can declare a batsman out. He also announce the end of an over (there are 7 balls in one over).
Cricket World Cup take place in every 4 years. Next Cricket World Cup will be in 2015. The countries who play Cricket the most are : England, India, Australia, West Indies, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.
To play Cricket, you must have to wear shin pads, helmet and strong grip gloves. We also need 2 sets of stumps.
Cricket is my favorite sport. What is your favorite sport?
