Hit The Ball!


Cricket 1 Vaansh Rajesh

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?

    Great Rajesh, appreciate your observation and knowledge about the game.

    I must also share that you are a very good batsman. Last time you scored 65 runs when we were playing outside in a playground. Yes offcourse when you practice indoor it is always a challenge for me and your sister to get you out.

    keep it up.

      Thanks dad, I would not have been good at cricket if you had not taught me how to play cricket. You always helped me when I practiced and bought me a professional cricket set when I started playing cricket. Rajesh

      Mrs. Theriault,

      Stumps are three (3) pieces of wood which form a wicket. I have shown the stumps in the picture given in my article.

        Thank you, Rajesh, that was a clear answer.

          Mrs. Theriault,

          In cricket, there are two sets of 3 stumps, with two bails (it is a small piece of wood that rest on the stumps) across the top of the stumps, that are defended by a batsman.

          Thank you for reading my article.

    Hi Rajesh,
    I find it very interesting that you play cricket. I had never heared of that sport before. You seem to have made some research on that sport because you know every country that still plays that sport, you also know what equipment you need and all.
    Do you play cricket in a real team or you just play for fun?
    Do you know others people who play cricket? (Except for your family).

      Hello Mr. Damian,

      Thanks for going through my blog. I do agree that Cricket is very popular in Australia, and whenever there is a match between India and Australia, I always watch it. I would love to play Cricket with you, whenever you are here.

    What an interesting post! You chose to tell us about a sport that isn’t discussed often and it really caught my eye!

    I love swimming and running, but I do not play many competitive sports. I tend to do sports to relax and clear my mind!

    Dear Rajesh,

    I love the title of your blog. Simple yet effectively getting the message across i.e. “Hit the ball” which to me meant that one should stay focused. It is super how you have gone into great details and have explained the game so well.

    Like you millions of Indian would list cricket as among their favorite.

    Keep writing.

    Wish you the best
