What Is Cricket?

The International Cricket Council has released a series of short videos (3 minutes or so) called “What Is Cricket?” These videos are designed to introduce the various elements of the game to audiences who may not be familiar with cricket. They are entertaining and informative, and can help parents and their young players quickly get up to speed with the second most-popular spectator sport in the world.
