Oh, come on! Anyone can understand cricket! There are two teams.
The team that's in sits out, except for two batsmen, and the other
team come out and try to get the men that are in out. When a man goes
out, he goes in and another man comes out. When the team that's in
are all out, except for the one who's not out, the other team goes in,
until they're all out, too; and then a second innings is played.
That's more or less all there is to it!
