: Extremely simplified and expecting nit-picking from the cricket fanatics:
: * 11 players per team.
: * One team bowls while another bats, there are two batsmen in play at any 
: one time, one at each end of the wicket which is twenty two yards long and 
: has a set of wickets at each end.
: * The wickets comprise of three vertical sticks (the stumps) and the bails, 
: two short sticks across the top of the stumps.
: * The bowling team's bowler bowls (throws) the ball at the wickets. If he 
: succeeeds in removing the bails the player is out.
: * The batter can also be out by hitting the ball in the air and being caught 
: or by preventing the ball stricking the wickets using his leg.
: * Bowling is grouped into "overs", there are six throws of the ball in an 
: over. After an over the bowler switches ends to bowl at the other wicket.
: * Play continues until ten players on the batting side are out.
: * The batsman tries to strike the ball so that the two of them can run from 
: one wicket to the other. Each time they does this it's a "run", i.e. one 
: point to the batting side.
: * If the batsman hits it over the pitch boundary it's four points, or six if 
: it goes over without touching the ground.
: * Both sides get two attempts at batting called an innings or alternatively 
: a fixed number of overs is agreed.
: * When the game is over the side with the most runs wins.
