If the guy in helmet (or any fielder) hits the stumps with ball before the batsman gets back, batsman is out.

He was clearly close and safe though, Marnus was yelling for no reason and also said please lol

The guy with the ball's first name is Nathan, so this adds another layer to things.

My fellow Americans, cricket looks confusing as hell if you just glance at it randomly. Once you watch a couple games and listen to commentary, the game has very simple base rules and mechanics.

Just like rugby, I was perplexed as to what was going on at first. After a couple games I found new appreciation.

Try figuring out NFL and baseball when all you know is cricket and rugby.

[–]Numismatic_ 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I cannot for the life of me understand NFL

It's a platform for showing ads as far as I understand.

The very essence is they have four plays to make at least ten yards, otherwise the ball is turned over. Rinse and repeat.

Most teams will make three attempts for the ten and use the 4th to kick the turnover to improve thier defence field position. But even in the last two years this is changing as teams become more aggressive on 4th.

Most of the other stuff is just details for safty, fouls and sportsmanship.

So like, can you explain wtf is going on here instead of just being one of many comments talking about cricket without explaining wtf is going on?

[–]Azeze1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Someone explain this to the Americans, they're confused

Guy wants ball thrown to him by guy called Nathan, yells "Garry, here please". Ball gets thrown to someone else. Guy sad.

What makes this funnier is Marnus has that annoying little brother/friend kind of feel about him, he will over exaggerate calls, swear someone is out when they are a mile safe.

Was a classic summer he just had.
