The field is quite large, but not as big as the football ones.
What do you know? You do learn on weekends!
Sunday the South African and Zimbabwe under 20 Cricket teams came and played at Bridge House. Max taught me about the game while they the teams played.
The point of the game is to get "runs." One gets a run by hitting the ball then running back and forth between the wickets. Wickets are three posts linked together that the hitters bat in front of. There is a white circle around the field, and if a ball rolls over it the running team gets 4 runs, if the ball is hit over the rope the team gets 6 runs. A hitter can get out when they the ball with the back of their bat. The players is also out if their ball is caught or the ball nocks over their wicket.
Over all the game was semi interesting. If I were to play/ support a non American sport, it would not be cricket. It is far too slow for my taste. Rugby is much faster and exciting.
