For Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Bowl.
With all the fuss over football and tennis at the moment, this is probably a good time to mention one particular sporting activity which is currently being overlooked, and I refer of course to cricket!
I realise the rules can be a little confusing, particularly to those in countries where it’s not appreciated, so I thought I’d offer you a simple explanation of what goes on during the game when the players aren’t taking their vital tea and cake breaks!
We start with someone that bowls a ball, two who try to bat it and lots of others that just stand around trying to catch it and this is how it works –
- There are two sides, one is in and one is out and 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 is out comes in, and the side that has been in goes out and tries to get those that came in out, so there are players that are both out and not out.
- When both sides have been in and out including the not outs, the game is over, get it?
