How do I know if my team is winning?

 
Fielding can be spectacular at times What do the other players do?
The 10 members of the fielding team who are not bowling stand around the field and try to stop the batting team scoring runs.

Batsman bat in pairs, so one stands at the stumps the bowler is bowling at, and the other stands at the opposite end.

When a batsman is out one of his teammates replaces him, until 10 players are out and only one is left, at this point the team is 'all out'.

Since the last player is not allowed to bat on their own, the batting team have to stop.
