Cricket is a game played by two teams of 11 players per side. Each team is aiming to score more runs than the opposition and depending on the form of the game, will have either one of two attempts (innings) to do so.
Batsmen attempt to score runs by hitting the ball, while the fielding team tries to get the batsmen out in a variety of different ways.
The methods of dismissal are:
Cricket was first played in the 16th century and the first international match took place in 1844 between Canada and the United States of America.
The first Test match, between England and Australia, was played in 1877 while the first One-Day International was not played until 1971.
Twenty20 cricket, while popular with schools and clubs for many years, was not played at the highest level until the 21st century.
