An innings is one of the divisions of a cricket match during which one team takes its turn to bat. Innings also means the period in which an individual player bats (acts as either striker or nonstriker). Innings, in cricket, and rounders, is both singular and plural; this contrasts with baseball and softball in which the singular is "inning".
Innings refers to a unit of play in certain sports, specifically cricket and baseball. Each team has a turn to bat and field in an inning, during which they attempt to score runs in cricket or score points in baseball while also attempting to eliminate the opposing team's batters or runners. An inning typically consists of a specific number of balls or pitches that the batting team faces before changing roles with the fielding team.
An inning, or innings, is a fixed-length segment of a game in any of a variety of sports – most notably cricket and baseball during which one team attempts to score while the other team attempts to prevent the first from scoring. In cricket, the term innings is both singular and plural and is always spelled and pronounced with the terminal "s". In baseball and softball, the singular form is inning and only the plural takes an "s". In many other sports, the length of the game is dictated by a clock and teams swap offensive and defensive roles dynamically by taking possession of a ball or similar item. In baseball and cricket, however, one team, said to be "batting", attempts to score "runs"—see run and run —while the other team, said to be "fielding", attempts to prevent the scoring of runs and get members of the batting team out. The teams switch places after the fielding team has succeeded in getting a fixed number of players out, making a clock unnecessary. In cricket, the term innings is also used to refer to the play of one particular player. By extension, this term can be used in British English for almost any activity which takes a period of time. It is also used in reference to someone who has died at a reasonably old age or lived a rich and rewarding life. The baseball-derived parallel to this in American English is the term at bat.
