How many times can a bowler bowl in cricket?

It depends on the variant of cricket being played.There is generally no limit to a bowler in First-class cricket since is there is no hard-set limit to the number of overs that will be bowled in a given innings.For limited-overs matches, the general rule of thumb is that no one bowler can bowl more than 20% of the given overs in an innings. In a One Day International (ODI) match, for example, a bowler can bowl a maximum of 10 overs (less if a game is shortened by weather). Accordingly, Twenty20 limits a bowler to four overs.There is, however, one important rule for a bowler that can cut short his innings. A bowler is not supposed to run through the pitch's protected zone (generally the zone directly between the wickets) while following-through on his delivery. If caught doing so three times, he is prohibited from bowling for the rest of the innings.

What is Sachin Tendulkar achievements?

He is an Indian batsmen who is the highest run scorer in tests an in O.D.I.s . He is born in Mumbai and is also nicknamed the little masterSachin Tendulkar has been the most complete batsman of his time, and arguably the biggest cricket icon as well. His batting is based on the purest principles: perfect balance, economy of movement, precision in stroke-making, and that intangible quality given only to geniuses, anticipation. If he doesn't have a signature stroke - the upright, back-foot punch comes close - it is because he is equally proficient in each of the full range of orthodox shots (and plenty of improvised ones as well) and can pull them out at will.Though he has adopted a noticeably conservative approach in the last quarter of his career, there are no apparent weaknesses in Tendulkar's game. He can score all around the wicket, off both front foot and back, and has made runs in all parts of the world in all conditions.Some of his finest performances have come against Australia, the overwhelmingly dominant team of his era. His century as a 19-year old on a lightning fast pitch at the WACA is considered one of the best innings ever to have been played in Australia. A few years later he received the ultimate compliment from the ultimate batsman when Don Bradman confided to his wife that Tendulkar reminded him of himself.Blessed with the keenest of cricket minds, and armed with a loathing for losing, Tendulkar set about doing what it took to become one of the best batsmen in the world. This was after he was turned away from a fast-bowling camp in Chennai by Dennis Lillee.Tendulkar's greatness was established early: he was only 16 when he made his Test debut. He was hit on the mouth by Waqar Younis but continued to bat, in a blood-soaked shirt. His first Test hundred, a match-saving one at Old Trafford, came when he was 17, and he had 16 Test hundreds before he turned 25. In 2000 he became the first batsman to have scored 50 international hundreds, and in 2008 he passed Brian Lara as the leading Test run-scorer and the first to 12,000 runs. He currently holds the record for most hundreds in both Tests and ODIs - remarkable, considering he didn't score his first ODI hundred till his 79th match.Tendulkar lied to at least one match review panel when his evidence changed in order to get his teammate harbhijan off a racism charge.Tendulkar's considerable achievements seem greater still when looked at in the light of the burden of expectations he has had to bear from his adoring but somewhat unreasonable followers, who have been prone to regard anything less than a hundred as a failure. The aura may have dimmed, if only slightly, as the years on the international circuit have taken their toll on the body, but Tendulkar remains, by a distance, the most worshipped cricketer in the world.Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar pronunciation (help·info) (Marathi: सचिन रमेश तेंडुलकर; born 24 April 1973) is an Indian cricketer widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. He is the leading run-scorer and century maker in Test and one-day international cricket.[7][8][9]He is the only male player to score a double century in the history of ODI cricket.[10][11] In 2002, just 12 years into his career, Wisden ranked him the second greatest Test batsman of all time, behind Donald Bradman, and the second greatest one-day-international (ODI) batsman of all time, behind Viv Richards.[12] In September 2007, the Australian leg spinner Shane Warne rated Tendulkar as the greatest player he has played with or against.[13] Tendulkar was an integral part of the 2011 Cricket World Cup winning Indian team at the later part of his career, his first such win in six World Cup appearances for India.[14]Tendulkar is the first and the only player in Test Cricket history to score fifty centuries, and the first to score fifty centuries in all international cricket combined; he now has 99 centuries in international cricket.[15] On 17 October 2008, when he surpassed Brian Lara's record for the most runs scored in Test cricket, he also became the first batsman to score 12,000, 13,000 and 14,000 runs in that form of the game,[16] having also been the third batsman and first Indian to pass 11,000 runs in Test cricket.[17] He was also the first player to score 10,000 runs in one-day internationals, and also the first player to cross every subsequent 1000-run mark that has been crossed in ODI cricket history. In the fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, Tendulkar surpassed Australia's Allan Border to become the player to cross the 50-run mark the most number of times in Test cricket history, and also the second ever player to score 11 Test centuries against Australia, tying with Sir Jack Hobbs of England more than 70 years previously.[18] Tendulkar passed 30,000 runs in international cricket on 20 November 2009. He also holds the world record for playing highest number of Test and ODI matches.Tendulkar has been honoured with the Padma Vibhushan award, India's second highest civilian award, and theRajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, India's highest sporting honor. Tendulkar became the first sportsperson and the first personality without an aviation background to be awarded the honorary rank of Group Captain by the Indian Air Force.[19] He has received honorary doctorates from Mysore University[20] and Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences [21] He won the 2010 Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for cricketer of the year at the ICC awards.[22]He needs one more hundred to get 100 hundreds for ODI and Test.Indian Cricket player.Sachin Tendulkar has been the most wholesome batsman of his time, and arguably the biggest cricket icon as well.

How do you pitch in cricket?

To begin with it is not called pitching, it is called bowling and it is not done by the pitcher it is done by the bowler. The most fundamental rule of bowling is that the arm with which the ball is released must remain straight therefore whereas in baseball a pitcher will release from a standing position (or near enough) a bowler will use varying lengths of a run up to help to generate momentum of the ball. There a three basic types of bowlers they are as follows: Fast bowler - this is a bowler who's main weapon is the sheer velocity of the ball and the lack of time a batsmen has to react - thus being hurried into making a mistake. Swing bowler - generally slower than a fast bowler but his aim is to make the ball swing through the air either away from the batsman or towards him. Spin bowler - generally a much slower bowler who uses spin off the pitch - in that the ball only deviates when it hits the pitch.
