How to play cricket?

Cricket is a game that is played between two teams. Each team has 11 players. In cricket, one team will have a player called the bowler throw a hard ball at the other team's players. Then, the other team's players, called the batters, will try to hit the ball with a bat. The batters will try and score runs by running back and forth between two sets of three sticks called wickets. Each time a batter runs from one wicket to the other, they score one run. The team with the highest score at the end of the game wins.
