Six Sentences

Post 1629.  Thursday February 8

The rules of cricket are simple.

There are two sides in the field, one is in and one is out.

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 that came in out.

Players that are still out are not out.

When both sides have been in and out including the not outs, the game is over.

  1. Thank god you made it! The use of the word ‘pitch’ in the context of a near-incompressible ‘sport’ that involved 1920s tennis garb and women with too much clothing totally came to mind yesterday and, I was, all, like ‘damn! I sho do hope Keith makes it to Sixville’
    (enjoyed the Six!)

  2. Seems like every BBC production I watch has a cricket match. Now perhaps I will understand it? NOT. They were even playing cricket in a recent episode of Murdoch Mysteries on the CBC – Canadian. Truly a mystery to me.
