Elle (pronounced el-lay) is a traditional Sri Lankan sport similar to baseball. There are 16 players to a side and all of them play in an inning. Traditionally Elle has two innings per side but modern Elle games are limited to 50-ball matches. An Elle field is twice the size of a baseball field. The batter can be struck out as in baseball (with three strikes) but in Elle there is no strike zone.
