Cricket and other stuff

Cricket Explained

One team is in and one is out.
The team that's in goes out
And tries to get the team that's in out.
And the team that's out goes out
When the team that's in is out they go in
And the team that was out is in
And then it's time for tea.

For those unfamiliar with the jewel in a sporting crown that is cricket 
I started playing aged 11.

Strauss needed a ton
The critics wanted his blood
The sun shone at five

By way of explanation - the England cricket captain has not scored a lot of runs recently and critics were calling for him to go. He answered them by hitting his first century since 2010
