I am going to continue with the sage cricket explanation.

Sometimes you get men who are still in but not out.

It look as though this is the end of an over. By the relaxed attitude of the fielder...( a fielder is from the team that is in but out) it might even be a break.

:hmz: Some fielding positions;
Third man - but there is neither a first or second man.
Silly point - not a weakness in your argument, but within klapping distance from the bat.
Cover & extra cover - no these are not what the ground staff scamper in the field to put on the pitch when it rains.
Square leg & long leg - not very useful when running to gather the ball.
Forward short leg and backward short leg - I am not even going to explain this other than they have nothing to do with shyness.
Slip - they try not to when they catch the ball that has deflected slightly off the edge of the bat.

HI MM :hello: :yaya:

Looking forward to the cricket, I understand Cricket from every angle and I played it over the years, and I also was the captain of my high school cricket team but today is the 1st time where I lost track when someone is explaining the game :doh: , did not know there was so many in's and out's :think:

But Great Thread :lol: , having a good laugh from it.

BB, although I have played cricket in the past, I never understoon fieldin positions and I was the captain :redface: , All I used to say was stand there behind the batsman or something along those lines :lol:

BB you mention the word slip.. Isn't this a family forum and the mention of ladies underwear should not be mentioned . especially as its found on a cricket ground full of men !!

Hi Bush Baptist

As this is a family forum, could you please xplain the cricketing term 'bowling a maiden over"?

:twisted:

Using my natural charm and good looks,

Oh in cricketing terms.....when a bowler delivers his 6 deliveries, called an over, and no run is scored from any of them, it is called a maiden over. Should it include a dismissal, it is termed a maiden wicket.

I relly hope that I can attend and describe one of those maiden overs

This is not a maiden. :wink:
