…so it must be raining!

Just hope it clears up tomorrow so that the cricket isn’t affected too much now that we are on top in the third Test!

I have difficulty explaining the rules of cricket to folk up here so I thought the following might be useful:

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 thats 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 all 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!

Simple!  Next…the lbw rule!
