Cricket: Where Math Meets the Game
Cricket is not just about playing and watching exciting matches, but there is some kind of interesting math equations are involved too!
One way to figure out how well a team is doing is by calculating the "net run rate." It is like measuring how fast a team scores runs compared to how many runs they might have scored if they played all their overs. It helps to decide which team is doing better in the tournament.
There is another thing called the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method, or DLS for short. It helps figure out a fair score if a match gets interrupted by rain. It a bit complex, but it does its job fairly.
Remember the last time England won the World Cup in 2019. The final match against New Zealand ended in a tie. To break the tie, they had a "super over" where each team played six more deliveries. But even after that, they were still tied! So, they counted how many times each team hit the ball to the boundary (either four or six runs). England won based on this count, but everyone thought it was a bit silly. Now, if this happens again, they will just keep playing more super overs until a clear winner is found.Meet Blaze and Tonk: World Cup Mascots
Is there a mascot and a song for the World Cup Yes! The ICC, also known as International Cricket Council is introducing mascots named Blaze and Tonk for this World Cup. Blaze has a powerful arm that throws fireballs really fast, while Tonk has a special bat and can make exciting moves on the field. They come from a cricket world called the "Crictoverse."What Do the Winners Get
The winning team will receive a medal, and they will also become legendary in the world of sports. They get to proudly lift a beautiful trophy and feel a rush of happiness and excitement. On top of that, there is a chance to win a share of $4 million from a big prize pool of $10 million.
It is the same prize amount as in 2019. The ICC wants to treat mens and womens competitions equally, so they have committed to giving out the same amount of prize money. In the last womens 50-over World Cup, the prize pool was $3.5 million, which was double what was offered in the previous tournament. So, it is a significant amount and a step towards fairness.Final Words:
