423rd ABG cricket team plays local team
UPWOOD, United Kingdom – Staff Sgt. Arnold Henry, 423rd Medical Squadron, swings for the ball a Huntingdonshire District Council cricket team member bowled during the first game played by the team Aug. 28 at Upwood Cricket Club, Upwood, United Kingdom. Behind each batsman is a target called a wicket. One designated member of the fielding team, the bowler, is given a ball and attempts to bowl the ball from one end of the pitch to the wicket behind the batsman on the other side of the pitch. The batsman tries to prevent the ball from hitting the wicket by striking the ball with a bat. If the bowler succeeds in hitting the wicket, or if the ball, after being struck by the batsman, is caught by the fielding team before it touches the ground, the batsman is dismissed.
