How Fielding Can Be Improved in a Cricket Match

Daily Mail Sports

1. Batting Average

 Batting average is basically the total number of runs scored divided by the total possible number of runs in the game. This ratio indicates whether the batsman was successful at scoring runs or not. When a batsman scores runs successfully, his/her average goes up while unsuccessful attempts by him/her lower his/her average. Therefore, batting averages play an important role in cricket matches.

 2. Strike Rate

 Strike rate is defined as the number strikes taken per 100 balls faced. A higher strike rate means better concentration level of the player. Strike rate is calculated by dividing the number of fours and sixes hit by the number of dots faced.

 3. Fours & Sixes

 Fours and sixes are the extra boundaries that are awarded in cricket matches. These extras are the simplest form of wickets in cricket but still considered extremely precious. At the end of a match, players usually try their best to score as many fours and sixes as possible. The number of fours and sixthes depend upon the type of bat used by a particular bowler. Generally, faster bowlers give more chances to hit fours and sixes.

 4. Bowling Analysis

 Bowling analysis refers to the study of bowling skills in particular players. It evaluates the skill of individual players and provides feedback regarding their performance. It helps coaches analyze the strengths and weaknesses of a particular bowler. For example, an accurate bowler may be able to dismiss batsmen from different parts of the field whereas a less accurate bowler would prefer to throw away the ball by aiming at specific areas of the field.

5. Batting

 Batting is where you should invest a majority of your time and effort. As a batsman, you take a wicket if you hit the ball straight back into the field, otherwise take two runs off the first ball you face. So, if you score 30 runs, you have scored half of your team's total but if you manage to score 30 runs and take 4 wickets, then you have won the match! Batsmen have to be smart and use their skills to plan ahead and think about what they want to achieve. They have to play shots at the correct time, and this is where practice comes in handy. Practice will help you improve your batting technique, so that you can score more often without any mistakes. This leads to scoring runs and taking wickets and winning matches.

6. Fielding

 The fielding of a cricket team is quite different from that of almost every other sport. There are ten outfield players in cricket, which makes the game unique compared to others. There are three types of fielding positions; each position has its pros and cons, but for all of them the object is to catch the ball before it reaches the boundary line. A fielder catches a ball by using his hands, which can be used to stop the progress of the ball. The best fielder is called the man at cover, he must be agile and quick in order to catch balls before they reach the boundary line. He is always expected to run towards the fence and try to catch a ball coming towards him. Another important part of field placement is when to throw the ball to the batter. It requires great skill to place the ball in the right spot. A good bowler will understand what the batsman wants and then bowl accordingly. The bat is placed in the middle of the pitch and the bowler aims to knock down the top edge of the bat to prevent the batsman from hitting the ball. An excellent bowler might even aim to break the stumps while bowling, which would result in dismissal.

7. Bowling

 Bowling is done by rotating your arm in circles, which moves the ball sideways, usually towards the batsman. The best bowler is said to be economical because he does not waste too much energy on his deliveries. The idea is to move the ball slowly during delivery and to aim for a particular area of the pitch. One way to judge whether you are doing well is to see how many runs or wickets you have taken in a single over. You may have a better chance of getting the ball past the batsman if you follow the advice given earlier in this article.

 8. Captaincy

 Captaincy is a very important role in cricket. The captain is responsible for leading his side throughout the entire game. He sets out the strategy for the whole match and ensures that his teammates perform to the best of their abilities. Captains have to be very strategic yet flexible, they must be able to read situations correctly and also take charge of crucial moments. If there is an opportunity to win, they should take advantage of it. However, if things look bleak, they should not panic but keep calm and focus on the task at hand. Captaincy can vary a lot between different sports, but this is one of the most important roles in cricket.

9. Batting Strategy

 Batting is one of the three main sources of runs in any cricket match. A batsman needs to score at least 15 runs from his/her side per innings to win the game. However, the number of boundaries that he/she hits can increase his/her chance of scoring big. Most of the time, the best strategy is to hit sixes whenever possible.

 10. Fielding Strategy

 Fielding is equally important as batting but its effect is much less compared to batting. Fielding is generally defined as “all actions taken to stop or prevent the ball reaching the wicketkeeper”. The bowlers usually take a long run up before bowling the ball, and sometimes bowl slower balls. The fielders should cover themselves near the bat to reduce the chances of getting hit by the ball. They should also try to hit the ball away from their body.

 11. Bowling Strategy

 Bowling is generally considered as the hardest aspect of the game. When bowling, a bowler uses various techniques to ensure that the ball reaches the wickets. Every type of delivery requires different techniques. In order to make sure that they stay safe, a bowler may not choose to hit the ball with full force but instead may aim for the middle of the pitch.

 12. Game Plan

 If a team wants to score maximum runs during the course of the game then they must possess good game plans. There are several strategies that every player should follow to help him/her achieve this goal. First, they should play according to the conditions of the day. For example, when it rains heavily, they will need to adjust the way they bat. Second, they should focus on making the most of their talents rather than concentrating only on hitting boundaries. Third, they should always remain positive. This will improve their morale and confidence levels.

How batsmen perform at the crease is extremely important for cricket. Batting is one of the hardest disciplines in cricket and has a big influence on whether a team wins or loses. It can be seen as a test of skill, endurance, stamina, composure and determination. Each player has his own style of play and while some prefer a long innings others may prefer to score quick runs. There are many different things that can affect the performance of a batter. One of the main factors that determine how well they bat is their technique. A good technique enables batters to hit the ball into gaps between fields and fielders. A bad technique will lead to the ball being played straight back to the bowler. This will result in failure and defeat.

 If the batter does connect with the ball then he has to decide where to bowl the ball. While this decision might seem obvious, the decision often comes down to experience and instinct rather than logic. Once the batsman decides where to bowl the ball, he needs to choose from the different types of balls in the pitch to best suit his plan. He should always try to focus on scoring quick runs and should only think about getting the maximum number of boundaries possible.

 There are many aspects that can affect a batsman’s batting, but we are going to discuss three major ones: technique, strategy and temperament.
