    Four runs

    "Cricket is game in which players can take upto four runs running" or "on foot, once you have taken four runs running . You cannot run further for more runs".

    Please check.

    Re: Four runs

    There's no point in correcting the grammar of these sentences as the basic facts are untrue.

    If the ball does not cross the boundary you can take as many runs as you are able without being run out, or until the umpire calls 'dead ball' or a fielder calls 'lost ball'.

    "Cricket is a game in which players can take up to four runs."

    This is grammatical. However, as Rover said, it is untrue.

    Re: Four runs

    I would say the batsmen can "make" up to four runs. Bowlers/fielder can "take" wickets.

    (I am continuing with the theme about a maximum number of runs, even though it's not true. This might interest some of you, regarding how many runs have been made off one ball.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Four runs

    Please put the facts aside. Could you please check my sentences? What should be used "running" or "on foot"?

    Re: Four runs

    Neither. Cricketers simply run or make runs.

    The grammar is wrong and the facts are wrong. Do you want further checking? And if so, what would you like people to check?

    Please check.
    Cricket is a game in which batsmen/batswomen can score between zero and about ten runs per ball.

    That's grammatical and true.

    Re: Four runs

    Would it be possible for me to "on foot" or "by running" in this sentence?
