Things women always wanted to ask about cricket!

Why should men always gawk at things like a long leg or a fine leg? 

Why should men be allowed to raise a point or a cover-point or a backward point or even a silly point?

Why should men show off their safety pads?

Why are they allowed to have four or even five slips. These are three or four slip ups too many!

Why should there be six and not seven balls in an over?

Why do they always think that they can cut, pull and....and drive better than them.

Why are men allowed to apply their saliva, sweat and what not on the ball? Isn't that supposed to be disgusting?

What are good bouncers and hookers doing on the cricket field? Shouldn't they be at a pub or a brothel or something?

Why should those two blokes wearing those big white hats be allowed to watch the game from the centre, while the other fifty-thousand slug it out in the stands?

Why should the men need to run when there are boundaries to be had all around them?

Why do men need to run from all the way back when they always have to bowl from the same point? Can't they just stand there and throw?

Why do some men bat right handed and the others left handed? Shouldn't there be any consistency?

Why should they show the replay of the same shot again and again? People can very well see it the first time.

Why do they play in coloured clothes when they play for a day, and in all whites when they play for 4 or 5? And why do the coloured clothing not bear the name of the player?

If Harbhajan bowls the doosra, who bowls the pehla? Wasn't Flipper the name of a dolphin in an Elijah Wood movie? Why do they bowl the wrong-uns, why can't men ever be right? And what on earth are these carrom balls, and what are they doing in cricket?

Why do men need to talk openly about their encounter with swingers? And what are these in-swingers and out swingers?

Why is there only one man-of-the-match? What are the rest?

Why isn't stand and deliver declared a myth? Deliveries are awfully painful, even when you're on all-fours.

Why don't they have an under the wicket option along with over the wicket and around the wicket?

What is this natural game, and how is it played?

Why does this World Cup happen every 5 years?

and finally...

Do they never get a nature's call while batting? And if yes, how do they attend to it?
