Cricket is one of the most popular bat and ball games in the world. It a sport featuring a bowler, a couple batsman, and 10 additional fielders on a 360-degree field with a simple 22 yard pitch with two stumps. It is a game demanding incredible accuracy, reaction speed, and tactics. It is a war fought in the most gentlemanly of fashions, which is fitting since Cricket was developed in England and Cricket tickets are most popular in the countries founded when Britain’s empire stretched around the globe.
The best leagues are, predictably, based in England and India, but the highest honor for any player is to represent his country in the Cricket World Cup, the ICC Cricket World Cup. This tournament is similar in nature to its European cousin, though it has multiple formats. Cricket is a sport with a uniform set of rules on the field of play, but has varying durations. Test tournaments require a team to be dismissed in order in two consecutive innings and these matches can go on for days. Limited Overs are just as they sound, a tournament with teams playing with a limited number of overs. Right now the most popular limited overs format is the Twenty20 and most cricket match tickets sold are for these roughly three hour contests.
