Takeaway for the day (Cricket) …

Filed under: Cricket — Porcupyn @ 12:23 pm

I hadn’t realized that only three batsmen can participate in the Super Over. Which means that if two batsmen are out, the Super Over is over!

Basic stuff that you miss if you are not really in tune with the game…



  1. Sure, I will be glued to this in a few days…but for now….

    Isn’t it more appropriate that you blog about Djokivich, Nadal, and oh almost Federer? 😉

  2. I didn’t know this either – the things I learn from your blog! :p

  3. D.S.:

    I was actually thinking of fessing up on the blog this morning that I did not realize that a plane flying over the Atlantic Ocean is actually out of radar contact for a long time. Don’t know why or how I did not realize that that could happen!

    What is also weird is that in the 21st century where every Tom, Dick and Harry has a personal GPS device that provides location updates on his every move along an interstate freeway or a thick jungle, not all commercial airliners are equipped with some similar device that beams real-time data to a centralized location. or maybe they are, but the public is not informed.

    And yes, it was really “almost Federer” too … glad he managed to piece it all together, though the going does not get any easier going forward. Monfils up next.


    Thanks for the compliment :-). But this really needs to get filed under trivia! No other use for such information, especially in the USA – won’t even act as breakroom ice breakers.
