A scene from a game of cricket: the batsman (holding a bat in his hands and wearing a helmet on his head, pads on his legs and gloves on his hands) raises his bat to hit the ball. If the ball hits the wicket (the three stumps/sticks in the ground) making the bails (two small sticks on the wicket) fall down, the batsman is out (eliminated from the game). If the batman successfully hits the ball, he will run to another wicket to score a run (a point). Behind the wicket, the wicketkeeper waits: if the bat touches the ball and the wicketkeeper catches the ball before it hits the ground, the batsman will be out. If the wicketkeeper gets the ball and hits the wicket while a batsman is running (before he arrives at the wicket), the batsman will be out.
