Having a Ball with Garrybl

|Welcome to the December CQ, a game for quiz takers and makers.|
In response to underwhelming demand, here is the explanation of cricket for Americans. There will be ten questions; each will explain some basic element of cricket and then give a question on a peripherally related theme. At the end of the quiz anyone (even those who have never seen the game played) will have a clue as to just how the game works.
The image represents a cricket field (shaped like an ellipse, not a diamond of course). The central area of the field is called the pitch, and it is in that area that the bowler delivers the ball to the batsman. One batsman stands ready to face the bowler, one waits at the other end of the pitch. There are two umpires, a bowler, wicket-keeper and a number of possible fielding positions marked. The fielding side has nine men in addition to the bowler and wicket-keeper. Ready, steady, go!
