A Beginner's Guide to Cricket

The Link's working fine for me. That's not a bad summary - a bit too much detail in some places (some of what she goes into isn't that important) and there's an Australian bias (a few examples of the terminology she gives only apply in Australia). dusted: I think the multiple meanings of wicket are one of the most confusing things about the game. Maybe you could just try ignoring the bits where she's written "(or wicket)" - at least at first :) jugwine: I've got a basic understanding of baseball - pity I wasn't watching with you :)

Justin: he probably does know what he's talking about. The guy's a great writer, but emphatically not a serious one. Everything he writes is a total piss-take.

Swells' writing has always been brilliant. He was a music writer (at the NME) for many years, and he's been at the Guardian for about a year, writing about sports. Under no circumstances should he be taken seriously, but he's always a good read.
