  • The fielding team tries to get the batsmen out by hitting the wickets with the ball when bowling. By catching a batsman’s shot before it hits the ground. By hitting the batsman’s leg in front of the wicket. Or by hitting the wickets before the batsmen can run to the other end of the pitch. 
  • The batsmen attempts to score as many runs as possible before getting out by hitting the ball and running between the wickets and making it to the other end before the fielders can hit the wickets with the ball.
