Cricket is a national sport which is played between two teams of eleven players each who score runs (points) by running between two sets of three small, wooden posts called wickets. The London Youth Games have three major cricket competitions in their event season: Kwik Cricket (best and girls), Y8U (M/F) and Inclusive cricket.
The longest cricket match took place in 1939 between England and South Africa, after 14 days it ended with a tie.
