    In cricket, a run is the basic unit of scoring. It is awarded when the batsman hits the ball with his bat and runs to the other end of the pitch, crossing the boundary line. A run can also be scored if the batsman hits the ball over the boundary without actually running (this is known as a boundary). In addition, runs can be scored by both batsmen running between wickets while the ball is in play (known as a ‘run out). The number of runs scored in an innings depends on the number of batsmen out, the number of extras conceded, and the number of wickets lost. The total number of runs scored in a match decides the result: if one team scores more than their opponents, they win; if both teams score the same number of runs, the game is a draw.

    In cricket, a run is the basic unit of scoring. It is defined as running between the wickets, i.e., from one end of the pitch to the other, while the ball is in play.

    The game’s object is to score runs by batting (hitting the ball with a bat) and running between the wickets. A run is achieved when the batsman hits the ball with his bat and runs to the other end of the pitch, crossing the line before the fielders can return the ball.

    The team that scores the most runs wins the match.
