    Sure.

    It's a complicated game but the basics are easy. I'll make a post about it after this match has finished if no-one beats me to it.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    I think you may be alright there, no rush loike.

    I'll be interested on how you cover "off-side", I know how it works but find it really difficult to explain, especially to the delicately nurtured.

    The Rules of Cricket


    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 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 got 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!

    Well as it clearly says..

    You can be not out, but if everyone else on your team is out, then you're not in anymore, and you all have to go in. Then when you all come out again, the other team is in, and you have to try and get them all out.

    Duh!!

    what's the crack when the ball hits the batsman's glove or the handle of the bat?
