Best Answer

In the sport of cricket, batting is the act or skill of hitting the cricket ball with a cricket bat to score runs or prevent the loss of one's wicket. A player who is currently batting is denoted as a batter, while the act of hitting the ball is called a shot or stroke. The terms batter or specialist batter are also used generically to describe players who specialise in batting (as opposed to e.g. bowlers who would specialise in Bowling).

During an innings two batter from the team bat; the batter facing the current delivery from the bowler is denoted the striker, while the other batter is the non-striker. When a batter is out, he is replaced by a team mate. This process continues until the end of the innings, whereupon the other team gets a turn to bat.
