difference between cricket and football

Cricket is a sport which is played between two teams of eleven players each who score runs (points). This is done by hitting the ball across the boundary, or by running between two sets of three small, wooden posts called wickets. The wickets are at each end of a rectangle of short grass called ‘the pitch’. The pitch is inside a much larger oval of grass called the ‘area of play’. The area of play is a 30-yard circle inside the cricket ground or stadium.[1]

Cricket is a bat-and-ball kind of game that is played between two teams, 11 players in each of them. The field has an oval shape with a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch in the center. In the game process, one team bats and tries to score runs, the more, the better, while the second team fields and bowls, and attempts to dismiss the batsmen and limit runs received by the first team. Teams switch between batting and fielding at the end of innings.
