We Suck at Cricket and We Don't Care


I take it we're no good at cricket.  I typically avoid cricket news, but the BBC has been screaming at me all week about how pathetic we are at this sport I don't understand.  I don't even understand the scoring.  The BBC's sub header is "World Cup group C, St Lucia: New Zealand 363-5 beat Canada 249-9 by 114 runs".  Does that mean we lost 363-5, 249-9 or by 114?

We bowed out of the World Cup at 0-3 with a R/R of -1.39.  I don't have a clue what that means either.  I don't get this sport in the least, but I know we suck at it.
