I am a very lucky person – I have seen some of the best cricket teams in the world at some of the best cricket grounds in the world but, oh yes, there’s always a but, I never saw Sachin Tendulkar and now it’s too late.

In a marvelous example of how confusing English can be and how difficult it is to explain the rules of some games, here is a link to a set of rules for how to play cricket. Enjoy!
