What's Cricket?…  What it's not.  1) NOT a cell phone  2) NOT a Little bug we collect in a jar.
Actually Cricket is a very popular bat and ball sport . It is the #1 bat and ball sport worldwide and #2 most popular sport overall. (behind soccer).  It's also the fastest growing team sport in the USA.

Quick Explanation: You have batters (batsmen) you have Pitchers (Bowlers) you have a target (wickets, also known as stumps) for the bowler to bowl at, the batsman tries to keep the ball from hitting the wicket, and at the same time hitting it in such a way that he can score runs for his team. Team with the most runs wins.

Imagine baseball with no foul territory, no balls or strikes and where you can
get 6 runs with a swing of the bat again and again because your still at bat.
