It is always good to follow at least one sport as a hobby
As far as latest sports news or sports videos are concerned, I always log in at selected sites and watch my favourite basketball games. If you know, the rules of basketball, thankfully, are fairly straightforward. Basketball is a team sport. Two teams of five players each try to score by shooting a ball through a hoop elevated 10 feet above the ground. The game is played on a rectangular floor called the court, and there is a hoop at each end. The court is divided into two main sections by the mid-court line. If the offensive team puts the ball into play behind the mid-court line, it has ten seconds to get the ball over the mid-court line. If it doesn't, then the defence gets the ball. Once the offensive team gets the ball over the mid-court line, it can no longer have possession of the ball in the area in back of the line. If it does, the defence is awarded the ball. The ball is moved down the court toward the basket by passing or dribbling. The team with the ball is called the offense And latest sports news. The team without the ball is called the defence. They try to steal the ball, contest shots, steal and deflect passes, and garner rebounds. When a team makes a basket, they score two points and the ball goes to the other team. If a basket, or field goal, is made outside of the three-point arc, then that basket is worth three points. A free throw is worth one point. Free throws are awarded to a team according to some formats involving the number of fouls committed in a half and/or the type of foul committed. Fouling a shooter always results in two or three free throws being awarded the shooter, depending upon where he was when he shot. If he was beyond the three-point line, then he gets three shots. Other types of fouls do not result in free throws being awarded until a certain number have accumulated during a half. Once that number is reached, then the player who was fouled is awarded a '1-and-1' opportunity. If he makes his first free throw, he gets to attempt a second. If he misses the first shot, the ball is live on the rebound.
Each game is divided into sections. All levels have two halves. In college, each half is twenty minutes long. In high school and below, the halves are divided into eight (and sometimes, six) minute quarters And latest sports news. In the pros, quarters are twelve minutes long. There is a gap of several minutes between halves. Gaps between quarters are relatively short. If the score is tied at the end of regulation, then overtime periods of various lengths are played until a winner emerges.

Cricket is the most loveable sport out of all

In its intensity, its passion and its sheer scale, Indian cricket is unsurpassed by any sport. One of my friends who has been in the media line told me once that the only time and place he has heard anything to match the noise made in an Indian ground when ViratKohli is batting well is at the Old Firm derby. And just like the Old Firm, Indian cricket has sectarian roots. Before the regionally-based Ranji Trophy, cricket in the country was all about the Bombay Quadrangular, played in a Gymkhana outside the city walls between teams representing the English, the Parsees, the Hindus and the Muslims. Those divides are long since forgotten, subsumed beneath a more unifying nationalistic desire to see team India win, but the strength of feeling those matches provoked seems to linger still among a committed minority And cricket videos.

The passion for cricket is such that when Pakistan lost to India in the quarter-finals of 1996 World Cup cricket videos, two Pakistani fans died during the game, one had a heart attack and the other committed suicide, turning his gun on himself after shooting out his TV screen. Again, you have to be careful not to extrapolate conclusions from such incidental and anecdotal evidence, but the stories still serve to exemplify the strength of feeling some followers feel. Nothing else in cricket comes close. The laws may stay the same, but financially and socially, cricket in some countries like India is a whole different ball game.
cricket videos celebrates the message that cricket is a game for everyone. We know that sport, especially cricket,has the power to bridge cultural divides. It has the unique capacity to bring together people from all walks of life be it on the streets in India, the beaches in the Caribbean or the alleyways in Melbourne. For years now, the game of cricket has fostered greater harmony, respect and understanding of people from all cultures. The impact that can be achieved by sharing a field together, and the camaraderie that is developed between teammates and opponents alike, remains the calling card of our sport. All cricketers, regardless of who they are, play not just under the laws of the game but under the spirit of cricket.
Two of the greatest passions of an average Indian at least for the last three decades have been cricket and cinema whether it is watching, following, discussing and debating the cricket matches or films with strong opinions about the stars of both fields. I am also certain that no two topics in India can make people in various walks of life can unite or divide with very strong agreement or disagreement among the fans of the celluloid screen and cricket field. And now, to catch some exciting cricket videos, just be online!
