423rd ABG cricket team plays first ever game

LONGSTANTON, United Kingdom – Master Sgt. Nathan Pollard, 423rd Security Forces Squadron, swings for the ball a Longstanton Grasshopper bowled during the first game played by the team Aug. 19 at Longstanton Bowls Club in Longstanton, United Kingdom. Behind each batsman is a target called a wicket. One designated member of the fielding team, the bowler, is given a ball and attempts to bowl the ball from one end of the pitch to the wicket behind the batsman on the other side of the pitch. The batsman tries to prevent the ball from hitting the wicket by striking the ball with a bat. If the bowler succeeds in hitting the wicket, or if the ball, after being struck by the batsman, is caught by the fielding team before it touches the ground, the batsman is dismissed.
