Save Your Balls
About the Game
There are 'good' and 'bad' balls in the game of cricket. Some of the bad balls are those which dismiss the batsman. For example, the batsman is out bowled if the ball hits and knocks out his wicket. LBW is a short for leg before wicket and this call can be made by the umpire if the player tried to stop the ball from knocking down the wicket, either by using his leg or any other part of the body. There is mention of other 'bad' balls in the game, for example 'caught' and 'run out'. Good balls are of course those which bring points - when you make a 'run' or more: 2,3,4 or 6. To achieve that, the player must hit the ball with the bat.
