Cricket Explained: It’s Not Quite Baseball

September 8, 2008
This is from this month’s Jane Austen’s Regency World magazine…pay attention…
You have two sides; a team that is in and a team that is out.  Two men in the team that’s in go out, and when one of the men who is in is out, the next man goes in until he is out.  When they are all out, the side that is 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 are trying 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.  (A well-known spoof, Anon)
There…did you understand that…LOL!!! Confused
