This is a Simple Electronic Project for Cricket Lovers. This simple circuit is designed using 555 Timer and CD4017. CD4017 is a CMOS decade counter and it is a very useful device for making different types of projects. LM555 Timer (IC1) is used to generate the clock pulse. This generated clock pulse is fed in to the 14th pin of CD4017 (IC2). Pin numbers 3, 2, 4, 7,10,1,5,6,9 and 11 of IC2 are used as the output pins. LEDs are connected to these output pins as shown in the circuit diagram. Output is indicated by changing the states of LEDs. This is a simple electronic project for students basically for cricket lovers. 

Working of Electronic Cricket game - DIY Project:

To start the game, switch S1 is put in ON or pushed position. In the beginning, all LEDs are in ON state. When we release switch S1, the final pulse triggers only one LED and the corresponding LED starts blinking and this indicates the result of Cricket game DIY project.

How Does the Circuit Works:

When we put the switch (S1) in ON position or when we release the switch, the 555 timer produces a pulse signal as its output. Actually this clock pulse or signal is the input to the decade counter, that is the signal to the pin no 14 of CD4017. Frequency of the pulse depends up on the values of resistor R1, R2, and capacitor C1 of the timer circuit part. The decade counter 4017 is designed in such a way that, it can drive higher load currents. So we can connect LEDs directly or using series resistors to its output pins. The pulse from timer IC triggers any one of the LED, which is connected to the output pins of CD 4017, and the corresponding LED become ON to indicate the result of this cricket game. Compare this result to the table given below and enter your scores. At last count all runs that you have played. And decide who the winner is.
