Photographer's Note

Occassionally I am asked " How do you define the game of cricket? I thought I would clarify the matter with this simple definition ( PS My apologies for the sexism within the definition- especially as there are now many women who play cricket around the world)

Each man thatís in the side thatís in goes out, and when heís out he comes in and the next man goes in until heís out.

When they are all out, the side thatís out comes in and the side thatís 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 been 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.

Now ladies you understand perfectly donít you?!

If further clarification is needed - then please refer to my favourite Wiki-- some wonderful definitions there as well
