What is cricket?
Cricket is a team sport played in most British Commonwealth countries, especially England, Australia, India, New Zealand, Pakistan and the West Indies.
You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Two men that are in the side that's in go out, and when one of them is out he comes in and the next man is in until he's out. When ten of them are out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out. When a man goes out to be in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he comes in and the next man in goes out and is in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been given out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game! If the game has not been finished after five days it is a draw.
