Understanding scope of Science with the help of Cricket


Most of us understand things in life when we look around for examples. Some things are easier to be understood when correlated with everyday things. One such correlation as an example to understand the scope of Science can be found in Cricket.

The game of Cricket!

Cricket is a game of ball, bat and wickets. It is a game in which a bowler bowls a ball to a batsman playing at other end of pitch trying to defend or attack the ball while saving his wicket. And there are other players who are fielding in the ground. And so many other aspects to it regarding the rules and regulations as well as the nomenclature.

Scope of Cricket

However cricket is played at various levels such as gully cricket, box cricket, in a ground and in a stadium. As well as various formats like T20, ODI and Test. In each format the number of overs are different and the strategy of game differs. As well as where it is played, the context of the game changes. However fundamental of the game remains the same. A batsman playing against a ball bowled by the bowler and trying to score runs.

In gully cricket it may be considered out if one hits the ball hard enough or in the sky beyond limits considering it may hit someone or break someone’s window glass. Whereas the same stroke with power would fetch one a boundary or a sixer in a stadium. In the context of the game and the situation the norms and expectations are changed.

Basic Science

Now let’s take the same stuff into Science. When one tries to understand the concepts of science like Light, Atoms, Energy, Plants, Human body systems and so on, at the school level, they are expected to gain basic understanding of the concepts. That may include, not limited to, the definitions, descriptions, examples and understanding the whats. Sometimes it includes the why and how of a concept in a simpler way without going into details, just like the gully cricket.

The same concept can be stretched on to understand in detail at college level, research level and some questions remain unanswered by science till date. We may reach to the closer approximation or explanation of something but we cannot affirm the confirmation of many things. Science certainly can explain and reproduce many events completely but some remain to be puzzled yet.

When any particular concept or topic is taken up in detail, it starts to behave similar to an international match in an championship event. It has many facets to it and everything is almost dynamic. So what should be the approach to learn Science. What is the simplest explanation of Science like that of cricket.

Approach to Science!

To be good at Science and to embrace it completely one must continue to be curious, be inquisitive to understand something well, ask questions, observe things acutely and connect all the information they have absorbed and if possible conduct experiments or further observation to base their understanding on firm provable and reproduceable facts and experiments.

Growth in Science

Often there may be no direct answers to the simple questions one may have at early age in school to the questions like why there are thunderstorms, how does it rain exactly, how do plants grow, why there are only 7 colors in a rainbow and many other things. Even though we may explain things in a simpler way by introducing the concepts like photosynthesis, refraction, precipitation and many other at early stage. Mere definitions and name should not be considered to be the final conclusion of something. By asking further questions one may learn more and giving rise to even more questions. In the quench to understand something a new discovery may await us. That’s how Science grows.

An example makes is easier to understand.

But all be said, within the scope of the game you must restrict yourself from playing shots in the air in gully cricket and hit harder in stadium. Same way one must learn to be flexible yet firm to understand and immerse in Science.
