As an Australian backyard cricket player the rules are
1. One hand, one bounce counts as an out
2. You hit it, you run
3. Over the fence means 6 and out
@The beasty beast, as an American.......what?
@animebigboy , g'day mate, only a true blue aussie will know what the bloody hell I'm talking about, fair dinkum mate
@The beasty beast, Are...are you purposely over-Australianing? Or is that how the average Aussie speaks?
@KermitSmash, it's how we speak you bloody drongo
@The beasty beast, The fvck's a drongo?
@KermitSmash, Australian slang for idiot (not calling you one, just trying to sound as aussie as possible)
@The beasty beast, No I understand, if my people had such a creative vocabulary I'd use it too! Lmao
@The beasty beast, mate us Brits know a wee bit bout cricket too mate
@KermitSmash, he's overdoing it... and badly. Bloody galah he is. Acting like a drop kick.
@The beasty beast, your a bloody galah, digger.
@TheMonkeyGod, listen up cobber, your head looks like a half sucked mango
@The beasty beast, you look like a bloody dogs breakfast.
@The beasty beast, aussie, aussie, aussie...
@animebigboy , as an Australian........ What?
@the one who creeps, really? You call yourself an Australian... but you don't speak the lingo.
@TheMonkeyGod, well I live here and was born and raised here... That's about it.
@The beasty beast, lads chill, how about we all go for a cheeky nandos settle and then go out on the lash, it will be utter banter
@The beasty beast, yes. But no. Because if you play in teams of 2 you just switch after a 6, also if the ball hits your leg before the bat its your fowl. If it hits your face before the bat its the bowlers fowl. If you hit it into your own leg then you've fowled. And if someone catches it you're out. Also if the ball hits the wickets before you run back to them and the bit on top falls of you're also out. #BritsExplainingBadly
@LeafOnTheW1nd, Keep ya bread hooks to yaself, ya square
@the one who creeps, but you can't speak the language? So very sad.
@LeafOnTheW1nd, Bruv you are a ledge that sounds top lets smash it. I'm Hank marvin and I don't fancy curry club and the spoons. Let's have a cheeky nandos with a side order of fresh bant
Crikey mate, you just smash the ball when it comes towards you. Dont let it hit the wickets.
It's called baseball you communist sons of b*tches!!!! *Pulls out 2 m16's and starts firing off rounds into the air while the national anthem plays and a bald eagle lands on my shoulder* frrrreeeeeeeddddddoooooommmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!
@The Collector, Murica?
@The Collector, what? Seriously, what? Just admit your ignorance instead of acting like not just a tool, but the whole tool shop.
@The Collector, The Brits ain't no reds
@Nosurrender, psssst I know lol it's a joke I don't think British people are communists.
Well the upper class British do and the rest of the whole bloody common wealth knows how to ( looking at you India)
Cricket takes thirteen players, consisting of three grabbers, three taggers, five runners, one center tagger, and the player at bat. The center tagger lights ball on fire and throws it to the player at bat. The player hits the ball and runs to knock a stick off the cross rods. Then the runners dash back and forth until the ball burns out and the umpire calls "Cricket." Finally, the scoredowns are added up, then divided by nine.
Grasshopper is a way easier sport to learn
Try explaing Gridiron to us Aussies. Far more complicated than cricket.
You hit the ball and sometimes you run.
I'm on a horse
Makes enough sense to me.
