Cricket Explained

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Some of you have admitted to not understanding cricket.  When my son
asked me how it was played, I didn't know either, so I searched on
Google for an explanation.  One site that I found really had a good,
short, concise statement that I offer to all.

Cricket - As explained to a foreigner

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in
the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next
man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out
comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those
coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out. 

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out,
and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.
There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they
decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and
all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all
the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end
of the game.

Like I said, it is now perfectly clear how the game is played.
