That match was over after about the 4th over of the 1st innings!

Are Australia about to go the way of the West Indies?

At the risk of sounding like a dumb American, and since the only thing I actually know about Cricket is what Douglas Adams wrote, can someone go over the basics a tiny bit?

Somehow I doubt Adams' version, while entertaining, is fully accurate.

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

You play for five days (including tea breaks) and nobody wins. I love it.

Just had a thought today that Australia, for all their cricket dominance never won the World Cup four times in a row, did they.
