Yikes, I think you deserve some sort of long-service award there!

I haven't a clue about cricket either, although I have a feeling that I might like it if I understood it.

(The person who throws is called the bowler. There is a famous piece of cricket commentary regarding Michael Holder and Peter Willey, in which the much-loved Brian Johnston (RIP) memorably declared, "The bowler's Holding, the batsman's Willey.")
