Best Answer

In the sport of cricket, the crease is a certain area demarcated by white lines painted or chalked on the field of play, and pursuant to the rules of cricket they help determine legal play in different ways for the fielding and batting side. They define the area within which the batsmen and bowlersoperate. The term crease may refer to any of the lines themselves, particularly the popping crease, or to the region that they demarc. Law 9 of theLaws of Cricket governs the size and position of the crease markings, and defines the actual line as the back edge of the width of the marked line on the grass, i.e., the edge nearest to the wicket at that end.

Out in cricket?

There are 6 ways in cricket in which you can get out in cricket: 1)Bowled-The ball hits the stumps then the person playing the role of the batsman is out 2)Caught-The ball touches any part of the bat and is caught in One's hand before it falls on the ground then you are caught 3)Run out there are creases in cricket.When you hit the ball you take a run . if the fielder throws the ball and hits the wicket before you reach the other crease you are run out. The non-strike batsman can also be run-out if he is outside his crease. 4)Leg Before Wicket (LBW).If your leg is in the line of the wicket and the ball hits your leg instead of hitting the wicket then you are out LBW 5)stumped-As I said there are creases in cricket when you go down your crease and hit it goes a great shot! But if you miss and don't return until the wicket keeper hits the wicket then you are out! 6)Hit wicket-By chance while playing a shot your bat touches the wicket and the bails on the wicket fall off you are out

It is called a goal crease because like many other sports it is where the goaltender stands. It has a special name because there are certain rules that apply to that area Thanks Matt, I understand.
