Call: something about term

The word call can be used by absolutely any player during a cricket match. In fact, this word has two main designations:

  1. During the batsman’s batting, the fielder can shout the word call. If the word came from the mouth of a fielder, it means that when the ball is in the air, the fielder sees it and tries to shout, “my, don’t take it, I catch it” (all this can be replaced with call). When a cricketer utters this word, other players will see it and the chance of 2 fielders colliding with each other decreases significantly.
  2. In the second case, players with a bat are involved when the call can be applied. As you know, during an over, the bowler serves the ball to the batsman. He, in turn, tries to protect the wicket and hit the ball. After the ball is hit, in which direction it flies, the batsman (there are two batsmen on the field) manages the situation. It is important that only one player with the bat gives the call command (this eliminates confusion during the ball’s flight). It is needed only to understand to another batsman whether to run or not, that is, to earn runs. It is known that when a batsman moves along the pitch, the wicket remains unprotected. Thus, fielders can take advantage of this and knock out all the stumps if the call command is pronounced incorrectly or at the wrong time. In addition to the word call, cricketers often use completely different words: run, stop, once, twice, 

By the way, in any team sport, it is important to communicate with the team. Firstly, it will save you from unnecessary injuries, and secondly, this is how the team shows its unity, which in almost any situation will result in a good outcome of the game.

The Call in Cricket is a very important person, a lot depends on him. Read more information about cricket in our section with cricket terms.
