I am not sure how many people will find this amusing, but I like it. If you don’t like cricket don’t bother reading any further. I was reminded of this joke when some friends I made in Northern Island asked me about cricket, they are from America.
You have two sides; a team that’s in and a team that’s out.
Two men in the team that’s in go out and when one of the men who’s in is out; 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 are trying 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 out all the time and they decided 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.
A wonderful way to explain the great of cricket.
