These are the basic rules of the game of cricket. You have two sides - one out in the field and one in. Each man that is in the side that is in, goes out and when he is out, he comes in, and the next man goes in until he is out. When they are all out, the side that is out, comes in, and the side that has been in, goes out and tries to get those coming in out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out. When both sides have been in and out including the not outs, that is the end of the game. If you can work this out, you are a true cricket fan.
