    The front part is called subdomain. You need to configure your hosting to point your new subdomain, 'cricket' in your example, to your wordpress installation folder. You need to also change WP site URL for example by modifying wp-config.php file.

    You can find details by googling.

    If you can't actually log in to the dashboard because of the problem, you will have to go into your database and manually change two rows in the wp_options table.
