You hit the ball and run between two bases, each trip gets you a point. Team with most points wins.

But anyway: USACA have been discredited and replaced by US Cricket, who seem much more on the ball and forward thinking. Soon you might possibly qualify for the pre-World Cup qualification qualifications.

Well it’s real simple.
Basically, there's three grabbers, three taggers, five twig runners, and the player at whack-bat. Center tagger lights a pine cone and chucks it over the basket and the whack-batter tries to hit the cedar stick off the cross rock. Then the twig runners dash back and forth until the pine cone burns out and the umpire calls "hotbox". Finally at the end you count up however many score-downs it adds up to and divide that by nine.

I'm so glad this is a Fantastic Mr Fox reference and not that inane "In/Out" copypasta.

Overs and Intervals are fairly simple. Overs are just six legal bowls done consecutively after which you switch were the bowler and batsman stand and change out the bowler. Intervals are just breaks in the match's for the players to take a break and not die during the match, so meal intervals(called tea intervals sometimes), drink intervals, and so on.

Test is basically just the teams playing four-innings each, and that goes on for quite a bit. Someone better at explaining should probably explain that one.

An over is a block of 6 balls by one person. They experimented with 4, 8, and 10 ball overs and decided that 6 was the best, so that's why it's 6. There's a lot of cricket laws like that. At the end of an over, you change bowler and come from the other end.

There are 3 types of international cricket, Test matches, One Day matches, and T20 matches. T20s consist of one innings apiece, each lasting 20 overs or until one team loses all their outs, whichever is first. Highest score wins.

One Dayers are the same but 50 overs apiece instead of 20.

Test matches are not subject to innings time restraints, so you bat until you lose all ten outs. Each team gets 2 innings, and the game can last a maximum of 5 days. This is the one where you can get draws after 5 days, because an innings is not judged to be complete until one side has lost all their outs.
