Spectators watching a game of cricket hear the sound, a spilt of second after a batsman make stroke.

The spectators watching the game hear the sound of after sometime because sound travels at a speed of 340m/s in air. Therefore, it takes sometime for sound to reach the spectators sitting in the stadium. On the other hand, light travels much faster than sound, and the spectators can see the event happening almost instantaneously.
