Cricket pitch length
height of cricket stumps

Cricket is a popular team sport played on a circular field between two teams of eleven players each using a bat and a ball. The batting team attempts to score as many runs as possible by striking the ball and sprinting between two sets of wooden stumps, while the fielding team attempts to prevent the batting team from scoring runs and taking their wickets by hitting the stumps with the ball. Each time the batter passes the crease (a line on the ground) at the opposite end of the pitch after hitting the ball, a run is scored.

Q3. What are the different types of cricket pitches used for playing cricket?

Cricket pitches are differentiated by their type of track and characteristics. They play differently and suit the playing conditions of different players, whether they are batsmen, pacers, or spinners.

Three types are adopted or found in different parts of the world:

  1. Green Pitch: Green pitches have a good covering of tall grass and moisture. That is totally good for fast bowlers.
  2. Dusty Pitch: Dusty pitches have a soft track, usually dry, which helps in turning the ball, which is ideal for the spinners.
  3. Dead Pitch: As the name suggests, dead pitches don’t have grass or moisture, and because of that, the ball doesn’t bounce and turn much. This type of wicket is totally batting-friendly.

Q4. Guidelines to be followed while designing a cricket pitch in a space?

  • Cricket can be played on a small field or in any small area; it should not always require a stadium to be played.
