You don't get points in cricket, but you do get runs and these are scored when a batsman hits a ball that's bowled at him and the ball goes far away enough to enable him and the batsman the other end to run from one wicket to the other. If they can do that more than once they get a run for each time. But if the ball goes to the boundary they score 4 runs anyway and if the ball goes over the boundary without having touched the ground they score 6.
