The main objective in cricket is to score as many runs as possible against the opponent. Before the match begins, the captain of both teams will toss a coin, with the winner of the toss being able to decide which team bats and fields first. Each cricket match consists of periods known as innings, and the number of innings that each team has will be determined before the match, usually one or two. During an inning, one team bats the ball while the other attempts to field. Both teams take turns alternating between batting and fielding. The match takes place on an oval cricket field, which consists of a rectangular pitch in the center.
In Tests, there will be no top-up of reviews after 80 overs in an innings: meaning now there will be only two unsuccessful reviews throughout the duration of each innings. DRS allowed in T20Is as well, with one unsuccessful review per team per innings. Unfair play There are several tweaks.
A catch-all law has now been introduced to give umpires the power to deal with conduct they believe is unfair but is not covered elsewhere in the laws.
Umpires can now send a player off the field for the rest of the match for any serious misconduct coming under Level 4 offences. Threatening to assault an umpire, making inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with an umpire, physically assaulting a player or any other person and committing any other act of violence will all constitute Level 4 offences.
No-ball If the ball bounces more than once before reaching the popping crease, it will be considered a no-ball. Previously a ball was allowed to bounce twice. Also, byes and leg-byes scored off a no-ball will now be scored as byes or leg byes in the scorecard.
As of now, any byes or leg byes scored off a no-ball went as no-balls. The conditions under which a batsman used to be out under Handling the Ball have been incorporated under Obstructing the Field mode. Although there are eleven people in each team only ten people need to be bowled out as you cannot have one person batting alone.
Batting is done in pairs. Once the first team has been bowled out the second team would then go into bat.
Once the second team is then bowled out it would normally return to the first team batting again. However there is an exception to this in the cricket rules, it is called the follow-on.
The follow-on is when the first team makes at least runs more than the second team made in a 5 day test match. This then gives the first team the option to make the second team bat again. This is particularly useful if the game is progressing slowly or affected by bad weather and there might not be enough time for both teams to play a full innings.
This is called a declaration. Some may wonder why a captain would forfeit the opportunity for his team to bat.
However if the game is coming close to a close and it looks like they will not be able to bowl the other team out again this could be an option. If one team is not bowled out twice and a winner determined in the five days of play the game is declared a draw. Therefore it may be worth declaring an innings to creat the possibility of a win rather than a draw. Ways to score runs The aim of the batsmen is to score runs.
In doing this one run is scored. Cricket rules state they may run multiple runs per shot.
As well as running they can also score runs by hitting boundaries. A boundary scores the batsmen either 4 or 6 runs. A four is scored by hitting the ball past the boundary after hitting the ground while a six is scored by hitting the ball past the boundary on the full before it hits the ground. They will only obtain the 4 or 6 runs. Cricket rules state that all runs scored by these methods are awarded to the batting team but not the individual batters.
The batsman can hit a no ball and score runs off it but cannot be out from a no ball except if they are ran out, hit the ball twice, handle the ball or obstruct the field. The batsman gains any runs scored off the no ball for his shot while the team also gains one run for the no ball itself. Umpires are much stricter on wide deliveries in the shorter format of the game while being much more relaxed in test cricket. A wide delivery will add one run to the batting team and any runs scored by the batsman.
The batsman is not able to get out off a wide delivery except if they are stumped, run out, handle the ball, hit their wicket or obstruct the field. Ways Batsmen can be given out according to cricket rules There are a number of different ways a batsman can be given out in the game of cricket.
However the ball is not allowed to have touched another player or umpire before hitting the wickets. This is done by the fielders, wicket keeper or bowler catching the ball on the full before it bounces.
If this is done then cricket rules state the batsman is out. However for the umpire to give this out he must first look at some of the factors stated in the cricket rules. The first thing the umpire need to decide is would the ball have hit the wickets if the batsman was not there. If his answer to this is yes and the ball was not pitched on the leg side of the wicket he can safely give the batsman out.
