    Yes, all English, Indian, Australian, Jamaican, Pakistani and Zimbabwean people
    can explain all the mysteries of cricket, with diagrams, statistics and clever
    idioms.
    Unfortunately, for those of us who are not English, Indian, Australian, etc.,
    these explanations are completely meaningless. Basically, there's a ball, some
    people run about for three days, everyone applauds and then they shake hands
    and toss a coin to decide who's won. Then the ones with white jumpers get
    photographed by newspaper journalists who complain the next day about national
    pride.
    I think they might be masons.

    oh dear! i didn't know about the mason theory!
    Can you be hindu and still be a mason?
    Personally I find it funny how the British (allegedly) taught it to all their
    friends in the commonwealth and now alwyas get beaten by themsmile Ok, so last
    year they won, right?
    But what IS cricket? A wicket and all that and those funny pads on their legs
    and innings and outings and why does it go on for dayyyyys?!

    You see? The weird rituals, the bizarre incomprehensible rules and the odd leg-
    wear? It must be masonic.
    There's no female or Catholic cricket teams...

    But they are allowed to talk about it, and they're even encouraged to waffle on
    about it endlessly, they're just not allowed to explain clearly what the point
    of it is.
    Just like in the masons.
    "Is it true you roll up your your trouser legs?"
    "Yes, we do give a lot of money to charity."
    "Are the masons a secret society?"
    "Well, I'm not a mason, but if I was I would admit it, so that proves we're not
    a secret society."

    Exactly like cricket. Including the homoeroticism.

    You must know that as the net is a non-verbal means of communication, any of

    Sąd Ostateczny w księgarni Antyk

    Janusz Korczak był masonem. Generał Tokarzewski był masonem. Antoni Słonimski
    był masonem. A każdy mason to sługa szatana - dowiedziałem się wczoraj na
    wykładzie pt. "Masoneria w dzisiejszej Polsce". Prelegentem był dr. Stanisław
    Krajski, a wykład odbył się w księgarni Antyk w podziemiach kościoła Wszystkich

    Maybe we should have gone? Maybe someone there would explain cricket to mesmile)))

    Who killed Robert Maxwell?

    I'm not how much of that story I believe. Especially the part about the Cold

    When he died, I remember thinking, what's the big deal with this bloke and was
    he SO important that the media went on and on about it.
  • 13.01.06, 16:42
    He did have a lot of connections, and was a big media personality.

    Then we all found out about the missing money. No wonder that the story hung on
    for so long.

    collonies. Does anybody plays Cricet in Russia or Brasil???

    Eternally boring, both Waldek and Cricket.

    The only difference is that the social summer Sunday afternoons on the village
    green, drinking beer and socialising, that go with cricket are fantastic.
  • 14.01.06, 12:57
    So I guess you have to go to a cricket game and get into it, in order to
    understand.
  • 14.01.06, 13:27
    I don't think you necessarily need to understand it to enjoy the atmosphere,
    although it really is a simple game (to understand).

    Get out on a fine summers afernoon, find yourself a village that has a large
    green, is playing at home, and you'll see.

    I'm a player of cricket and willing to explain something.
    cricket is the game of gentlemen (at least english believes)
    there are two kind of cricket matches
    one day match - obviously it takes one day,two innings,each inning would have
    50 hours game.
    test cricket match - it takes five days,but sometimes result can be declared
    before fifth day,due to poor performance of one team.mostly test matches are
    boring for those who never played crciekt.
    1.each cricket team consists of 11 players
    2.there would be 2 ampire during match on the ground,third ampire would be
    sitting infront of computers.
    ----------------------------------------
    bowler - person who will throw the ball towards the batsman
    batsman - person who hits the ball
    fielders - 10 players who are ready to run after ball
    wicketkeeper - man behind the stumps
    ----------------------------------------
    Its hard for me to explain about this game on forum,but I can learn you that
    how to play cricket on ground within one week covering all basic rules of the
    game.

    PS I am a right hand batsman and right arm fast bowler
  • 15.01.06, 02:08
    On which planet is the day long enough to play a 'one day match' for 50 hours?
    Your boredom threshold has to be well above average to watch it for five
    minutes (no offence to cricketers).

    The rules are simple smile
    wemadeoutinatreeandthisoldguysatandwatchedus.com/view.php?id=119
    Explanation of how to play 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 that's 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 all 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 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!"

    >cricket is the game of gentlemen

    Would burping and belching be frowned upon? What if a player is caught passing
    gas?

    >I guess the playing field is too big for anyone to noticesmile

    I think you are right. In that case, you don't have to act like a gentleman and
    you will still be considered one. I need to think about it some more...

    retarded women who will response in stupid way.

    Now that's not like you Dave.

    What is it all about?
  • 16.01.06, 10:40
    Retarded is a fairly damming insult you know, and if it not (an insult), then
    it's even worse. Have you a retarded person in your family? I have.

    In the UK, cricket is a gentlemanly game. I don't think you should be playing it.



  • 16.01.06, 16:56
    If you go to Britain Express site - the UK travel and heritage guide - click on
    history then culture, and under pastimes you'll find 'cricket' with its history
    and, shock horror, the offending rules. They are accompanied by the following:

    Editor's note: The humorous piece of seeming nonsense above really does
    describe the game of cricket perfectly.

    I guess they were written by some cricketers with a sense of humour. It takes
    all sorts to make the world, I wouldn't dream of accusing you of being one of
    them.

  • 16.01.06, 21:46
    Sorry for offending you so much, Piotr. I might have a rather off beat sense of
    humor at times but I am well familiar with golf ettiquette myself. Believe it
    or not those questions pop up quite often. I have seen people belch and pass
    wind on golf courses. If it's a semi private or public course, you can get away
    with that. If you are on a private one, you might get fined or you get a strike
    against you and you will not feel welcome next time. Have you heard of a guy
    that passed wind that blew sand out of the bunker? Serious stuff.The golf
    course charged him to replace the sand. Someone like you wouldn't know that
    because you probably know as much about golf as you do about the game of
    cricket.

    In case you wanted to know.
  • 17.01.06, 11:00
    There's an important golf match in progress, they're playing for club trophy,
    it's the final match between two old gents and suddenly funereal music is
    heard ... have I told this one?

    One of the players takes his hat off and stops playing for two minutes as the
    funeral procession passes on the road near by. The other player aftersays "I
    found that very touching, the respect you showed back there for that deceased
    person".

    "Well, I felt I should do something. After all, we were man and wife for forty
    three years".

    People who play golf ("golfers" I believe they call themselves nowadays)
    probably know this, but lay people, like myself (and also the heroine of the
    famous chemistry teacher joke) may not.
    an "Adolf Hitler" is when you take two shots in a bunker
    an "Arthur Scargill" is a really great strike, but with a poor result
    They might have got as far as "B", but it's a slow game...

    For those who don't know who Scargill is/was, try:
