    It's cricket. It's not for you to understand. :)

    I've tried to understand cricket, but it's just not happening.

    West Indies are rallying:

    England 370 & 313 v West Indies 229 & 301-5 (stumps)

    Very rough translation: The -5 means that West Indies have five wickets (out of nine) in the innings. Therefore, they have four wickets (i.e. outs) in hand and only need 153 more runs to win.

    "Stumps" means the umpire called the day over.

    Actually, ten outs in an inning. Other than that, good effort, old bean.

    It's an innings, not an inning.

    Did you see how long the whole recap was. Are there cricket fans out there who want to read all that? Amazing, but I'll still with American sports.

    He could mention that he was on the Big Red Machine and they played baseball which is sort of like cricket. And also that if Derek Jeter played cricket, he'd be the best player ever.

    And then Jon Miller would roll the "r" in "cricket" for no reason.
