cricket is well know know game and easy to play too. Basically for playing cricket u require stumps, ball and bat. There are 2 teams having 11 players in each team. 2 players from one of team will take bat and the all players of against team will bowl and take fielding. this game is for 50 overs and 6 balls in every over.

2 sets of 11 players, although you can have less according to the situation you are in.
Find a playing area big enough that the boundary (anything you choose) is about 60 meters away from where the batsmen is batting.
You will require a ball (Tennis, hard, soft anything that works), stumps (three on each end) and bats.
While two batsmen are batting, you will need a space for an area where players are waiting to bat. Once all but one batsmen are dismissed, you have a choice. ( A dismissal comes in various forms, either bowler hitting the wicket, batsmen hitting the wicket, being caught by any member of the opposing team, being run out when a feilder removes the bails of the stumps at either end while a player is not back in his crease (the safe zone essentially for both batsmen). The choice is you follow the rules set out by the MCC and the opposing team begins to bat, attempting to beat your target. Or, for fun, you could have a last man standing, in which the player who has not been dismissed will bat on his own with someone else running for him (the runner will not bat, and players will continuously switch ends if the batter is on the non strikers end).
A bowler has to bowl over arm and cannot bowl more than 6 balls on the trot (barring wides and no balls). Then, after finishing his designated over, he must let someone else bowl. The main aim of a bowler is to get the batsmen out (following one of the various means of dismissals). The LBW dismissal has to be decided by an umpire, who would decide if the ball is going on to hit the wicket if the ball strikes someone in front of the wicket on their pads (leg if your using a tennis ball). The bowler and the batsmen should be approximately 20 paces apart.
A batsmen has the main objective to score runs and stay at the wicket. Batsmen crossing while running will score the team one run, while they can repeat that many times until the ball is in the bowlers hand. A batsmen automatically scores 4 runs when the ball goes to the boundary while the ball has touched the ground even once. If it clears the boundary while the ball has not touched the ground, it is a 6!
The team which scores the most runs in the end wins, and this is fundamentally how to play cricket (P.S. Try keep the ball along the ground, you won't get out as often).
