I don’t understand cricket. Really, I don’t. I tried, honest. In fact, I even started to read an article in the paper about it. It started like this:

You could have heard a pin drop, but for Jon Lewis the silence must have been deafening.

Not bad, right? ‘I can understand this!’ I thought. So, I read the next paragraph:

Surrey needed 17 off 12 balls when he was square-driven for six by Martin Bicknell. Then, with the target reduced to seven off the final over, Lewis’s fumble at short fineleg turned Rikki Clarke’s routine flick for one into an all-run four.
And that is why I don’t understand cricket. I mean, why would Lewis fumble at the short fineleg?
