Glossary of Terms


Outs –  the state of a batsman who has been dismissed

Innings –one team's turn to bat (or bowl)

Over – the delivery of six consecutive legal balls by one bowler

Deliveries – the number of bowls

Wide – a delivery that passes illegally wide of the wicket, scoring an extra for the batting side. A wide does not count as one of the six valid deliveries that must be made in each over – an extra ball must be bowled for each wide

Runs – In the sport of cricket, a run is the basic unit of scoring. Runs are scored by a batsman, and the aggregate of the scores of a team's batsmen (plus any extras) constitutes the team's score.

Fielding - in the sport of cricket is the action of fielders in collecting the ball after it is struck by the batsman, in such a way either to limit the number of runs that the batsman scores or to get the batsman out by catching the ball in flight or running the batsman out.

Fielder – a player on the fielding side who is neither the bowler nor the wicket-keeper, in particular one who has just fielded the ball

Batsman- A player on the batting side, or a player whose speciality is batting,[1] or one of the two members of the batting side who are currently at the crease.

Bowling- the act of delivering the cricket ball to the batsman

Wicket Keeper - the player on the fielding side who stands immediately behind the batting end wicket
