I'm told that this is newsworthy but I'm in a little over my head here. Anybody out there speak cricket? Supposedly some team of 11-year-olds in Britain got thrashed so completely that all of Europe is talking about it, but I have absolutely no idea what they're talking about. Was it worse than this? Help!

A junior cricket team took up an embarrassing place in history when they were all out for four runs. Chippenham under-11s were chasing a total of 129 set by their opponents, Marshfield, but had nine ducks, six batsmen bowled out, two run-outs, one catch and a stumping during their 20-minute innings.
Sounds like they could be describing the NBA Finals so far.
And now my list of cricket terms which sound like sexual positions but aren't:
