```Greetings,

Disclaimer: This source code is written by a Python Newbie.
Use at your own risk! =)

Here is a snippet that might work for one batter:

#!/usr/bin/env python
# cricket.py
# 2007-07-26
# b h a a l u u at g m a i l dot c o m
import random

def batterUp():
score=[1,2,3,4,6,'Out']
totalScore=0
while 1:
hit=random.choice(score)
if hit != score[-1]:
totalScore=totalScore+hit
print "You batted",hit,"Total runs:",totalScore
else:
totalScore=totalScore+0
print "You're OUT! Total runs:",totalScore
break

batterUp()
# end criket.py

Notice that the list, score , has integers and a string in it.
I use the integers to add to the running score, and use the
string 'Out' to stop the while loop. I just did this, and it ran
okay the few times I tried it. YMMV. =)

Happy Programming!
