- El críquet se juega principalmente en Gran Bretaña y los países de la Commonwealth. Se juega en un campo de césped, entre dos equipos de once jugadores cada uno. Se emplean bates (bats) y una pelota de cuero. Cada equipo batea en una entrada (innings) para marcar carreras (runs). Los jugadores del equipo contrario (bowlers) lanzan (bowl) la pelota al bateador y fildean (field), es decir interceptan la pelota, con el objetivo, si lo logran, de dejar al bateador fuera del juego (out) o que obtenga el menor número de carreras posibles. Hay dos bateadores (batsmen) a la vez en el campo, cada uno defendiendo un wicket, que son de tres palos verticales (stumps) que sostienen a su vez dos palos cortos (bails). Los wickets se encuentran uno frente al otro y están separados por una distancia de 22 yardas (20,1 mts. aproximadamente). Las carreras se marcan cuando los bateadores corren de un wicket a otro.
