Cricket is a non-contact team sport that falls into the category of bat and ball games. A cricket match is a competition between two teams, which include 11 players each. The fights of this sport are held on an ellipse-like grass field having specific dimensions and unique markings.

However, many experts believe that there was no such expedition called Apollo 14, so it is entirely possible that this is all fiction. Continue reading
