Cricket World Cup

Post by BigMcK »

On directv 625, they are broadcasting ICC T20 2024 World Cup games. Still not sure the rules for scoring, wickets, innings, etc... but this has me watching the game every night.

Run for 50 feet, throw a curve ball into the dirt in front of some guy with a paddle, who then hits it backwards or into the field, two players run to the opposite end of the dirt, and the announcers call out, "Brilliant".

What is this game?

I think I caught Cricket fever from the Indian restaurant we visit. The owner of the place tried to explain the rules, and it looks like an easy game to play, but I still don't understand the rules. Still going to watch as long as it's on.
