Scouts, have you ever considered how important it is to speak clearly and concisely about something so that the other person is in no doubt about what you mean. Sometimes we may have described something accurately but have said it in such a confusing manner that the meaning is totally unclear. Let me explain what I mean with this little and very accurate definition of the game Cricket.

CRICKET - As explained to a foreign visitor.

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 that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When both sides have been in and out including the not outs.


For any of you that know how to play cricket will know that this is a very accurate description. But it gives the other person no idea at all of what the game is about and how to play it. Think before you explain something to be sure you convey your thoughts clearly before you make a fool of yourself and get stumped!
