Complete Guide to Understanding Cricket (Part 3)

Batsmen A and B are equal because they can contribute to their team scores equally, just like any one of the five players on the basketball court can score on any property. However, only the batter has the opportunity to score any score, similar to how only one basketball player can shoot the ball at any time.

The rule that a run is earned to run once extended to infinity. If Batsmen A and B manage to run all the way up and all the way back, their team scores two runs. If they can run hundreds of times, their team will earn hundreds of runs.

In fact, there is a limit to how many physical batsmen can run 22 yards before the fielding team gets the ball from the restricted range, so it is uncommon to see batsmen run even four times. (Cricket legends are full of funny stories from previous years of people running batsmen dozens and even hundreds of times running like surfers looking for a lost ball in long grass, or taking one ax to chop down the tree.

The fisherman can also gain points by hitting the ball to the boundary at the perimeter of the field. If the ball hits the boundary, touch the ground at least once, the team hits four runs. If the ball is hit all the boundaries (like a baseball run), that’s six runs. This is simply called ‘four’ and six ‘. The batsmen do not need to run to earn the score, unlike in baseball, where a player must round the grounds after socking a dinger.

On the other hand, the delivery may not take action. Batsmen can choose not to hit the ball and drop it harmlessly to the wicket holder or can choose to hit the ball with their own but then don’t run. This is unlike baseball, where the players have to run on the ball directly.
