The Right Areas

Our cricket cliché counter

We've got a game on our hands

What it means This match is getting interesting

What it really means This game was getting so predictable, I was running out of cliches, but after this boundary/wicket/catch I can now use this one

What it doesn't mean I handled my Wisden Almanack right after doing the washing up and I've now got the stats from the third day of the Minor Counties West v Gloucestershire in the 1976 County Championship all over my palms
