World's Second Most Popular Sport

Cricket is a locally popular recognized sport in Special Olympics. The first international Special Olympics cricket tournament was hosted in India in 2006. There are over 81,000 Special Olympics athletes participating in Cricket. Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on an oval-shaped field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. One team bats, trying to score as many runs as possible while the other team bowls and fields, trying to dismiss the batsmen and thus limit the runs scored by the batting team.
