. The bowler
, a player
from the fielding team
, bowls a hard, fist-sized cricket ball
from the vicinity of one wicket
towards the other. The ball
usually bounces once before reaching the batsman
, a player from the opposing team. In defence of the wicket
, the batsman plays the ball
with a wooden cricket bat
. Meanwhile, the other members of the bowler's team stand in various positions around the field as fielders, players who retrieve the ball
in an effort to stop the batsman
scoring runs, and if possible to get him or her out. The batsman
— if he or she does not get out — may run between the wickets, exchanging ends with a second batsman (the "non-striker"), who has been waiting near the bowler's wicket
. Each completed exchange of ends scores one run. Runs are also scored if the batsman
hits the ball
to the boundary of the playing area. The match
is won by the team
that scores more runs. Click Coast Caribbean Images
