Cricket - A nice explanation

Have you watched 'Mind your Language'? Well it is one of the most hilarious show I have ever seen.. once there was an explanation on how cricket is played. Let me see how much I can reproduce .. But if you can get hold of the serial do watch it ..

Mr.Brown (The English Professor explains the game) “There are two teams with 11 players each. One side is in while the other is out. Well what I meant was one side is on the field while the other is inside. The first two men, the batsmen, walk onto the field to bat while the other side is on the field, fielding. One guy bowls the ball and the other tries to hit it. When they get out they go back to the pavilion and another guy comes in. Did you get what I said?"
Student : "Oh yes Professorry! I get it.. The point here is while they are in, they are not actually in but they are out. But while they are out, they are not actually out but they are in... palayamo what a game!!!"

PS: Hey Guys I am taking a break for a week will be back next week with more useless topics and useless commentry to addle your brains and mine ;-)

It reminds me of this jingle, in-pi-septi-pin in-pin-out, out-goes-the-septi-pin in-pin-out. What your finger points at at the final 'out' is what you choose. I remember having made several important decisions as a kid using this one, with complete faith.

As for the vagaries of Cricket, that's why we love it! Just like the English language. It's madness.
