Location for matchesEdit
Parts of the pitchEdit
A batsman's ground is the area behind the popping crease at his end of the pitch. In general, a ground belongs only to the batsman who is closest to it, and stays so until the other batsman gets closer to it. 
If a batsman is out of his ground (which can happen when he enters a ground that another batsman is already occupying), he may be dismissed by being run out or stumped if the wicket in his ground is put down by the ball. Batsmen can run from one ground to the other to score runs.
