Sport of millions- Awkward questions about cricket



World Cup

And although cricket is almost unknown outside the former British Empire, in countries with a total population of about 2 billion people, it is a religion. They have heard about Messi and may have an idea of who Pele is. But in the hearts forever – Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting, and in the Instagram feed – Virat Kohli and Joe Root.

India captain Kohli confidently pushes the Bollywood stars at the top of the popularity chart and earns $25 million a year as Liverpool’s top scorer Mo Salah.

Ex-captain Sachin has a status close to divine in India. And the former leader of the national team of Pakistan, Imran Khan, now leads the entire country as prime minister. Australia is minting coins bearing the portrait of the legendary Don Bradman, and the British Queen is knighting former English captain Alistair Cooke.

Do they really play all day long?

Only if it’s a short match. Normal – the so-called test, the test – lasts five days: six hours a day with a 40-minute lunch break and two 20-minute tea parties.

The classic series of five test matches, in which two separate teams regularly sort things out with each other, takes up to a month and a half.

This has advantages. At least in the fact that, at the amateur level, cricket goes well with a day-long picnic in the park. And the spectators of the professional match of professionals are always guaranteed entertainment from morning to evening.

What to do if it rains?

This is not the only problem. There are also bees.

During the rainy season the match is suspended. The field is covered, and special machines pump out water from the lawn and its central playing part – the pitch, the preparation of which requires special skills and patience.

In one-day matches, if the rain does not stop before the evening, then the game is declared inconclusive. But not always: if enough balls are played in the second half of the match, the result is determined by a complex formula developed by the English mathematician Tony Lewis.

And what is the purpose of the game?

The main rules are very simple. Nuances and exceptions are another matter. It is difficult to understand them all even after a month and a half of almost daily matches of the World Cup. But this only makes the game more interesting – almost any meeting gives rise to heated debates.

In the middle of the 19th century, the British even considered banning competitive cricket for public safety reasons. A rare game then did without massacre and mutilation – and even murder.

If you do not go into subtleties, in general terms, everything looks like this. Two teams of 11 people – like in football. But they attack and defend in turn.
