A little ditty about cricket

Thanks to Rooster who posted this. I read this 15-20 years ago and have been looking for it ever since. But I couldn't remember enough of the specifics of it to google it (I just remembered lots of ins and outs which are kinda hard to search for :) )

Explanation of how to play Cricket

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes
in and the next man goes in until he's out.

When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been
in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and
when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.

There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they
decide when the men who are in are out.

When both sides have been in and all the men have out, and both sides have
been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not
out, that is the end of the game!"

What is Cricket?
Cricket is quite simple. You have two sides, ours and theirs, one out in the field and one in. Each man in the side that's in, goes out, and when he is out, he comes in, and the next man goes in, until he is out. Then, when they have all been in, and are all out, the side that's been in the field, comes in, and the side that's been in goes out, and tries to get out, those coming in. Sometimes you get men still in and not out. Then, when both sides have been in and out, including not outs, that's the end of the game. It's really very simple.
