We will talk about how to pick teams, what positions people play in each team, and how to use some basic tools to become a better cricketer.

Watch cricket videos
There are several ways to get into cricket game play. The most popular way is by watching cricket videos. You can watch how professional players do things, or you can create your own gameplay using strategies and skills that learn from those professionals!
There are many sites with cricket games online. Some free while others cost money to access some features. Most have you choose between beginner mode, medium level, advanced level, and pro player settings.
The best way to start playing cricket is in the beginners’ setting. Once you feel more comfortable, you can move up the levels. But remember, even the very experienced players were once noobs (newbies)!
You also do not need an expensive software package to begin. All of these websites offer you their app or softwares free to try out.
Read about cricket
The term cricket comes from the Latin word crista, which means bar or stick. That’s because in early times, players used bats made out of sticks!
These sticks were usually wooden and had small feathers attached at one end so that they could be rubbed against each other and produce a sound for measuring distance. It is this sound that gave rise to the name “cricket.”
Nowadays, most countries use a ball as your bat and fielders don’t have gloves, but you can still play cricket by using a hard plastic baseball bat or even just a regular bat with a cork handle!
There are five main positions in cricket: wicketkeeper (also called gully), striker, all-rounder, middle order, and keeper.
As the name suggests, the wicketkeeper position is mostly defensive. They stand behind the boundary line and take charge of catching and throwing balls. This is why they are also referred to as backstop.
The striker position is an offensive player who tries to go around the batting side of the field and score runs. This is typically done through hitting the ball with the bat.
All-rounders are special players who can do anything well. These people are very versatile and solid contributors to their team.
Middle orders are more specific than generalists. A middle order player will put together a sequence of plays that bring them closer to victory.
Learn how to spell the different cricket terms
The next thing you will need to know is how to spell the different cricket terms! Most of these are self-explanatory, but here we will go through them in detail.
A lot of people start playing cricket once they learn the basics like fielding, batting and goal shooting. By now most of them have learned what the ball is and how it moves, but few understand the term ‘shot’ properly.
A shot is anything that changes the course of the game. It can be done by any player; batter, bowler or fielder. A quick run, a good throw, hitting an overhead pass with a bat – all qualify as shots.
This article will teach you the differences between a hit out, dribble, cut, skip, drag, back foot punt, reverse bounce, hook, pull and top edge.
Learn how to pick a cricket team
Choosing your football (soccer) side is very similar to choosing your club in cricket! Both teams are made up of 15 players, and you can have either an all-male or female team. The captain usually chooses these people before the season starts and they cannot be changed during the game unless he is replaced.
The position of player is also important as there are different positions like striker, defender, wicketkeeper, etc. These jobs vary from one sport to another. For example, in rugby union, the hooker is responsible for attacking the try line so that their team can score a touchdown.
In basketball, the goal keeper must keep a close eye on his area to make sure nothing gets through to set up a shot. In hockey, the goalkeeper needs to defend the net with their stick while the rest of the field players use their skates to attack the puck or player.
Become familiar with cricket stadiums
There are five major cricket stadia that make up the game’s stadium collection. These include MCG, Eden Oval, Brisbane Stadium, Adelaide International Arena and Melbourne Rectangle. Each of these venues has at least one field where you can play your matches.
There is also an option to create your own custom ground by importing a template or creating your own from scratch. You will need enough money to fully upgrade the facilities as well as hire out the fields for use during off-season!
The best way to learn how to be a good player in The League is through gameplay. By becoming familiar with each stadium, you will know what kind of players are located there and which ones look the most authentic.
Know the different cricket formats
In one-day international (ODI) games, each team gets an equal amount of time to bat or field before the game is over. This is called a normal full length match.
In Twenty20 matches, only two hours are given for both teams to complete their batting and bowling strategies. This is because the game lasts just twenty minutes longer than the ODI format!
The cricket format you choose to play depends on what level you want to compete at. At the highest professional levels, there are many variations of cricket to pick from.
You have Test cricket, which is very long (three days) and has more rules than other formats. You have limited-overs cricket (Twenty20 and fifty-over games), and one day internationals where players get a short break between innings.
Be familiar with famous cricket players
There are many ways to be a great cricket player, but being able to identify some of the top players in the game is a must! Some people know Shimron Hettheer from his flashy batting style or his ability to hit big sixes, while others may recognize Chris Gayle for his powerful shot-making.
By learning who these players are, you will learn how they play the game and what strategies might work for you. You can also check out our article here for more information on how to become a better cricketer!

How to start playing cricket

Know the history of cricket
The word ‘cricket’ comes from the Latin term cricca, which means ball or sphere. This was later adapted into the French word craque, meaning spherical body.
The game we know today as cricket originated in England where it was first played during the early 1800s. It was originally known as rounders, an English game that is similar to baseball. In 1863, Scotland made its entrance onto the world stage by playing test matches with England!
Since then, cricket has spread around the globe, incorporating many different cultures. Many countries have their own style of play and terminology, making it difficult for outsiders to fully understand the sport.
