Here is one example from the 1970’s

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out, and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out. When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

  1. New Zealand black caps vs south africa was the hardest game for nz black caps and the most awesome cricket game ever.

  2. If it was hard facing South Africa then how will NZ win the finals against Australia.

  3. Hi I am Lara,I am 10 years old and I want to give this ago with to explain cricket.I found the other from 1970 confusing.There are 2 sides, one team is batting and the other fielding. The fielding team has to try and get the batter out by catching the ball on the full or knocking over the wicket with the ball. The wicket is 3 wooden sticks standing vertically in the ground with another set the same a certain distance away, opposite the other wicket. The batter has to hit the ball as far as he can and start running from one wicket to the other which is counted as a run. Also the the batter has to try and get as many runs as possible before he gets out. The team with the most runs win.

    Cricket you need ball a bat a boundary a pair of wickets and 2 teams
    First you do a coin toss who ever wins gets to choose to bat or bowl.
    Each team gets 10 wickets if all of the ten wickets it is a change over and at the maximum number of overs is 50 in each over there is 6 balls if they bowl a wide it is a re ball if the ball hits the ground then hits or go over the boundray it is four if it goes over the boundary on the full it is six
