The rules can be complicated How does a game work?
Bowlers bowl the ball in sets of six, called overs. Batsman stay in and try to score runs until they are got out by the fielding team.

The batting team's turn to score runs is called an 'innings'. In a game, each team has the same number of innings, and the team with the most runs, wins.

Some games are played in single day, called one-day cricket, while others like Test matches last longer, up to five days.
