  1. Scoring

    Scoring in cricket matches involves citing two facts, the number of runs scored by each team and the number of wickets each has lost. These are the basic figures likely to be quoted in a media report on a match completed or still in progress. Overall the number of runs scored is generally the most important figure because the team that scores the most runs wins; the number of wickets lost shows how many wickets the bowling team has to get to end the batting team's innings. In making a judgement at any point in a game about which team is more likely to win, other factors would be taken into account, such as the number of overs or the time remaining, the state of the pitch, or even the weather.
