Thanks for your quick replay. but what is senior and junior ? – Darshan Kunjadiya Jun 30 '14 at 11:40
Senior cricket is what we see in international/domestic matches. While junior cricket is a school level (which can be national level) and age less than 16. – hims056 Jun 30 '14 at 11:44
but in yahoo feed i show this line (26 inches is the length of a cricket bails ) this is right ? – Darshan Kunjadiya Jun 30 '14 at 11:50
Absolutely WRONG. That must be the size of a stump not the bail – hims056 Jun 30 '14 at 11:57
I just gave you the details about bails. You may ask another question for stump. But remember to always search before posting. – hims056 Jun 30 '14 at 12:00
