Imagine that each player is given a list of things their manager/coach would like them to do in each match. For example:
Score lots of runs.
Stop the opposition scoring too many runs.
Bowl out the opposition.
Imagine that that is a "Things To Do" list, with a little empty box next to each task. At the end of the match, the winning team would be able to "tick" each box on that list, to show that they did all the things they were asked to do.
