hello, we are the essex blades cricket club
Cricket is a team sport with 11 players per side with two innings per game. In the first innings the batting team try to score as many runs as possible and the bowling team try to restrict the number of runs they score through fielding and bowling them out. The teams then switch in the second innings and try to chase down the batting total made in the first innings. If the batting team scores more runs they win but if the bowling team stop them from achieving this they win.
