Modern cricket is a team sport originating in England, and popular mainly in areas that formerly made up the British Empire. The major international test teams are England, Australia, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, South Africa, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, and the West Indies. The game is played between two competing teams of eleven players on each side, on a large expanse of (usually grassy) ground called a pitch. In the center of the pitch is a length of grass, (usually 22 yards long), called 'the wicket'. At each end of the wicket are placed three sticks adjacent to each other in an upright position which are called the 'stumps'. One side 'bat' first; the other side bowls to them. Batsmen play in pairs, each equipped with a bat, one at each end of the wicket. The bat is made of wood (usually White Willow) and the ball is a hard leather-seamed spheroid with a circumference of nine inches.
