I love it when the test cricket is on. I have an excuse to sit in front of the television for long periods of time and I don’t feel guilty. The reason for not feeling guilty is . . . . it is sport.
For those of you who are bemused by the game of cricket this little explanation might help you!
“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 are 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.
I found that explanation on Zurich Crickets Cricket Club website.
To help those of you who have no idea what a silly mid off is, this diagram might help!
