How many types of getting out in cricket?

11: Bowled; Caught; Stumped; Run out; Lbw; Hit wicket; Handled the ball; Obstructing the field; Timed out; Hit the ball twice,retired out.
  • "Caught behind" and "Caught & bowled" are classified as just 'Caught'.
  • 'Handled the ball' can be disregarded if the batsman is asked to pick up the ball by a fielder, usually the wicketkeeper.
  • 'Timed out' occurs when one batsman is not ready for play and on the pitch within two minutes of the previous batsman being out (or three minutes if he is to be the nonstriker).
  • 'Hit the ball twice' can be disregarded if the second hit was to prevent the ball being 'played on' (hitting the stumps after being played a first time).
  • If any batsman leaves the field of play without the Umpire's consent for any reason other than injury or incapacity, he may resume the innings only with the consent of the opposing captain. If he fails to resume his innings, he is recorded as being Retired - out. For the purposes of calculating a batting average, retired out is considered a dismissal.

Why do crickets chirp?

Only male crickets chirp. It's actually called 'stirdulation'. This happens when it rubs the bottom part of one of its wings on the top part of the other wing. There are 3 reasons why crickets chirp; 1) to attract females; 2) to impress the female he has already attracted; 3) to warn other males to stay away. Also, you can tell the temperature outside by listening to how fast they chirp; the hotter it is, the faster they chirp and the colder it is, the slower. Just count the number of chirps you hear in 13 seconds and add 40 and that's the temperature.

Are cricket bites dangerous?

Cricket bites are more annoying than dangerous. These little insects bite out of self defense, so unless they're trapped in your hands or between you and your clothes, there isn't much to worry about. When a cricket does bite you'll know for sure - it will be a small sharp pain and burn. The best remedy is a dab of polysporin - this will help prevent infection but also relieve the pain and burning pretty quick. In my experiences, the polysproin did the job within about 1-2 min (stopped pain and burn, reduced redness and mild swelling). Of course if you are allergic to insect bites, you need to seek health care immediately. As far as the insect community is aware, there are no poisonous crickets. In fact, if a cricket is in your house, I would be more concerned about finding holes in my wardrobe and clothes than being bit!
