Cricket

The English are up 102-2 over India in the first test.

Whatever that means ....

(The game started at about 4:30 this morning, London time. They've already had lunch.)

Unless India have had an innings, no one is actually winning yet :)

According to the BBC England finished the day with 246 runs for the loss of 7 wickets, which isn't very good apparently.

I have no idea what any of this means. I just like the idea of a game going on for seven hours in each of several consecutive days.

Maybe somebody will go with me to a cricket match to explain the game to me.

I actually went to a cricket match last year so I'm a super expert now. ;)

246 for 7 means they scored 246 runs but seven of their batters were got out (a fielder caught the ball like in baseball or the ball hit the wicket). Once 10 of the 11 batters are out the inning is over (you need 2 batters to play.) Then they'll be x runs "all out" (except the last batter is socred as "not out").

Simple really ;)
