To put in simple terms, it is just a bat and ball game, in which two teams of eleven players each, play with an aim of scoring runs. Today, the game is the most lucrative sporting event and rules the roost in the world of Sporteology. If one were to go by the huge follower base and the tremendous craze for the game in India, Cricket is more a religion, than a game.
