Full Answer

In cricket, the pitch is the central playing ground where a bowler at one end of the pitch releases the ball toward the batsman at the other end of the pitch. The batsman attempts to hit the oncoming ball. When a ball is hit, the batsman attempts to reach the opposite end of the pitch in order to score a run while the opposing team attempts to run out the batsman, thus avoiding a scored run.
