In really abstract terms, that is exactly what is going in: hit the ball with the stick. You can see how such games might originate organically and continue to be popular over centuries, including among kids.

Proceeding from there, one team bats while the other fields, and the first team tries to score runs while the other team tries to get all their batters out. Kind of like baseball Some obvious differences are, there are two batsmen out on the pitch instead of one like in baseball, there are a couple of wickets rather than "bases", and there isn't a "strike zone" like there is in baseball. Also, the scores will be way higher, and test matches can last for days (a bit hard-core compared to a baseball game which might be over in a couple of hours)
