How to make scores

As shared, the purpose in cricket is to score runs. Which team has more runs finally, they are winners.

To score runs, there are some ways to calculate whether it’s correct or not.

Firstly, batsmen run from one end to the each other end of pitch and scores. They get one point in per shot.

Secondly, they can score 4 or 6 runs by hitting boundaries. If ball passes the boundary after hitting to the ground, batsmen can receive 4 runs while ball passes the boundary on the full or before hitting to the ground, batsmen will own up to 6 runs.

Besides it, there are other ways to score runs by using rules with no ball, wide ball or byes and leg byes. All these methods are offered for the batting team, not any individual player. We discuss detail as below:

  • No ball can be from many reasons like: batting ball from the wrong place, or batsman has a run without ball for his shot.
  • Wide ball when the umpire points out that the batsman doesn’t have reasonable chance to score run.
  • Byes when ball passes the striking batsman or run us scored but not from batsman’s hitting.
  • Leg bye when batsman scores runs but no ball or wide ball.
