It means a batsman has been dismissed.

Or Symonds giving a streaker what-for?

I fucking hate how little sport is on free-to-air now. AFL's covered fairly well but I want my rugby, damnit!

Totally worth doing.


Just ignore anything on Duckworth-Lewis.

It doesn't make sense anytime, anywhere. Just accept what it says.

For the benefit of Pee Fan, et al., this means:

Six balls are bowled (by the one bowler) per over. The above shows what the batsmen did each over. The full stops represent no run, a "dot ball". So the first over there, England scored 1 run, then lost two wickets. The second over, the only run scored was a no ball, i.e. a point given to the batting team as a penalty for an illegal delivery from the bowler. The third and fourth overs are both maidens, i.e. no runs were scored.

Holy fuck, that's been, what, four maidens in a row?!

Alright, so the general run scoring occurs from the striker and non-striker both successfully reaching the wicket, which is one run.

It's four runs to reach the boundary, six to get over in the air. One run is awarded on a "no ball."

Now, what's the difference between a dismissal and getting no runs?

It's still more interesting than Englands efforts on Day 2 and 3.
