Example text

Cricket matches can be slow affairs, a sudden flurry of activity when the bowler delivers the ball to the batsman followed by a minute or so of inaction as the bowler prepares to bowl the next delivery. ߜ Much of the language used in cricket is arcane or just plain bizarre, see earlier in this chapter for more. The truth is that you either love or loathe cricket and the fact that you have picked up this book means that you are at least inclined to join those that love it. Many cricket watchers suggest that there has never been a more exciting time to be a cricket fan.

Unusual dismissals Ninety-nine per cent of dismissals are one of five types: bowled, caught, LBW, run-out or stumped. But, every now or then, a player is dismissed for one of the following five unusual transgressions: ߜ Hit the ball twice. The player has a brainwave and decides to hit the ball not just once but twice with the bat. I’m afraid this means a long, lonely walk back to the pavilion. ߜ Hit wicket. The player hits his own stumps, dislodging the bails with the bat or pads. Why would a player do such a silly thing?

The basics to help you crack the scorer’s codes are: ߜ A dot mark indicates that nothing has happened off the delivery. No runs have been scored, and no player has been dismissed. ߜ A number indicates that runs have been scored off the delivery. For example, the number 4 indicates four runs scored. ߜ The letter W – standing for ‘wicket’ – indicates that a player has been dismissed by the bowler’s delivery. ߜ A cross (+) indicates that the delivery has been adjudged wide by the umpire. An extra run is added to the batting team’s total score and the delivery has to be repeated.
