Stumps, Stones and Ashes 三根柱,石头和灰烬杯
When you hear the word ‘cricket’, what do you think of first?
A small, chirping insect? Or a summer sport between players in white trousers and woollen jerseys who stop for a 20-minute tea break in the afternoon?
The chances are, if you’re in England, India or Australia, you’ll be thinking of the latter, where the sport is watched, played and adored by millions.
English cricket fans are currently rejoicing in their national side’s victory over Australia in a fiercely-contested competition called The Ashes last week.
But in many other parts of the world the sport is virtually unknown. Many outsiders are put off by its complicated laws, unintelligible terms (any idea what a googly or a grubber is?), and mind-boggling statistics.
With games that last for days or even weeks and scores that look more like share prices than sports results, how do we begin to understand this game?
