12 Teams Compete in Shenzhen Cricket Tournament this Weekend
22 Mar 2019
The Indian Curry Cafe (ICC) Ever Rolling Trophy Season 2 Cricket Tournament is taking place this Saturday and Sunday (March 23rd and 24th) in Shenzhen.
Twelve teams from all over Southern China are coming to compete in the event.
Cricket is a bat-and-ballgame played between two teams of eleven players on a field at the centre of which is a 20-metre (22-yard) pitch with a wicket at each end; each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps. Essentially, the game of cricket involves two teams who attempt to score runs. The team with the most runs is the winner.
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.
Like every other sport, cricket has rules and regulations that one must follow to play the gentleman's game. The popularity of the sport has increased over the years and many countries like China and the USA are preparing to venture into international competition. Television ratings and stadium attendance have been increasing and advertisers are willing to heavily invest in cricket.
