Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a field at the center of which is a 20-meter (22-yard) pitch with a wicket at each end, each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps. The batting side scores runs by striking the ball bowled at the wicket with the bat, while the bowling and fielding side tries to prevent this and dismiss each player (so they are "out"). Means of dismissal include being bowled, when the ball hits the stumps and dislodges the bails, and by the fielding side catching the ball after it is hit by the bat, but before it hits the ground. When ten players have been dismissed, the innings ends and the teams swap roles. The game is adjudicated by two umpires, aided by a third umpire and match referee in international matches. They communicate with two off-field scorers who record the match's statistical information.Cricket has close historical ties with Australian rules football and many players have competed at top levels in both sports.The sport is followed primarily in the Indian subcontinent, Australasia, the United Kingdom, southern Africa and the West Indies, its globalisation occurring during the expansion of the British Empire and remaining popular into the 21st century. Women's cricket, which is organised and played separately, has also achieved international standard. The most successful side playing international cricket is Australia, having won seven One Day International trophies, including five World Cups, more than any other country and having been the top-ranked Test team for more than two decades.Cricket is one of many games in the "club ball" sphere that basically involve hitting a ball with a hand-held implement; others include baseball, golf, hockey, tennis, squash, badminton and table tennis.In cricket, the rules of the game are specified in a code called The Laws of Cricket (hereinafter called "the Laws") which is maintained by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The ICC is the global governing body of cricket and deals with the sport's rules and regulations.The key difference between cricket and other games in the "club ball" sphere is that in cricket, a batsman can score runs by both hitting the ball and running between the wicket. This is called "batting", "stroking" or "hitting", and is analogous to golf, in which the player hits the ball and then walks to where it landed. There are other subtle differences between cricket and other games in the "club ball" sphere, but they are not germane to this article.The main objective of batting is to score runs. A run is scored when the batsman hits the ball and runs to the other end of the pitch, crossing the crease in the process. If the batsman hits the ball and it goes to the boundary, four runs are scored. If the ball goes over the boundary on the full, six runs are scored. In either case, the batsman and any runners must remain within the boundary until the ball is dead, otherwise they are liable to be run out.Once the batsman is out, the next batsman in the team comes in and the process repeats itself. The team batting second tries to score more runs than the team batting first. If the team batting second scores more runs than the team batting first, it is said to have "won by n wickets", where n is the number of wickets left to fall. If the team batting first scores more runs than the team batting second, it is said to have "won by runs", where the margin is the number of runs by which it has won.Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played on a cricket field (see image, right) between two teams of eleven players each. The field is usually circular or oval in shape and the edge of the playing area is marked by a boundary, which may be a fence, part of the stands, a rope, a painted line or a combination of these; the boundary must if possible be marked along its entire length.There are various formats ranging from Twenty20, played over a few hours with each team batting for a single innings of 20 overs, to Test matches, played over five days with unlimited overs and the teams each batting for two innings of unlimited length. Traditionally cricketers play in all-white kit, but in limited overs cricket they wear club or team colours. In addition to the basic kit, some players wear protective gear to prevent injury caused by the ball, which is a hard, solid spheroid made of compressed leather with a slightly raised sewn seam enclosing a cork core which is layered with tightly wound string.The main laws of cricket are those of:# fair and unfair play (including interference with the fair and proper conduct of the game);# the right to umpire the game;# the safety of players, umpires and spectators; and# the prevention of time wasting.The game is played in accordance with rules agreed between the two teams, which are binding on them and the umpires. The main rules governing batting are:# the batsman must not hit the ball twice;# the batsman must not waste time;# the batsman must not hit the ball dangerously or recklessly;# the batsman must not, after the bowler has released the ball, step out of his crease or move his bat in a manner which could reasonably give rise to the belief that he is not going to play a stroke;# the batsman must not, while the ball is in play and he is not on strike, deliberately and unnecessarily waste time;# the batsman must not, while the ball is in play and he is on strike, deliberately and unnecessarily waste time;# the batsman must not, after he has been given out, waste time;# the batsman must not, when the umpire has called "over", waste time;# the batsman must not, when the umpire has called "no ball", waste time.The main rules governing bowling are:# the bowler must not waste time;# the bowler must not bowl dangerous or unfair deliveries;# the bowler must not, after the umpire has called "over", waste time;# the bowler must not, when the umpire has called "no ball", waste time.The main rules governing fielding are:# the fielder must not waste time;# the fielder must not, after the umpire has called "over", waste time;# the fielder must not, when the umpire has called "no ball", waste time.The following are offences which, depending on the circumstances, are considered either unfair play or dangerous and unfair play:# the deliberate waste of time;# the deliberate physical abuse of equipment or clothing;# the deliberate and dangerous use of the bat;# the deliberate and dangerous use of
