Cultural Note: cricket

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.
