Hi,

Nut there was no doubt about his next effort, when he lifted the ball over Pollitt to double the lead.

what does the sentence above mean? 'He' hit the ball high, above and past Parker's head. The lead was 1 , get another and you have doubled it, to 2.

and what is nut? I think it's a typo for 'but'.

who are the bowlers in a cricket game? The guys who throw the ball to the gus who hit it.

Pakistan's bowlers worked their magic, as England collapsed to defeat by an innings and 100 runs in Lahore.

what id the meaning of innings and runs? In cricket and baseball, each team takes turns to bat. One team's turn to bat is called an 'inning'. A 'run' is what you score. Often, you do it by running from one place to another.

The home side's 636-8 first innings proved too big a target for England.

what is the meaning of too big a tiger?is it a slang? Too big a tiger is a tiger that can eat you for dinner. A target is a goal that you try to achieve. In this case, it was the big score set by the home side. It was too big for England to pass, so England couldn't win.

Two first-halyou up inf goals from Rudi Skacel against Livingston enabled Hearts to move into pole position in the SPL. 'Hearts' is the name of the team. If you are in pole position, you have the best chance of winning. It's from car-racing, where the cars start behind each other and the fastest driver is at the front, beside the pole that marks the start.

Best wishes, Clive

Hi,

Sports writers use a lot of terms that no-one else uses in conversation, so don't worry too much about all these things, OK?
