Seriously, How Do You Score Cricket?

I’m still in Sri Lanka, which means that of the 40 television stations on  my hotel TV, four are showing cricket matches! For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to score this blasted game. 4 overs for 135 and blah blah blah. I’m used to sports where when you score, you get one point. Or sometimes two or three. Occasionally six.

But, still, it makes no sense. Someone help me out!

Read all of my posts from Sri Lanka, and consider sponsoring a child as well.
