i was confused about this too....its basically the area around a river. The drainage basin is basically the area from which water is collected for that particualr river. I hope that mekes sense.

How does it link to the hydrological cycle or doesn't it?

The drainage basin of the river could be described as the landmass where the features of the hydrological cycle for a particular river take place. The drainage basin is the land area where precipitation that falls onto the land will eventually reach the main river. The water may travel overland or in soil or through rocks.
