Now, I never played international cricket and have never been a cricket professional, but I still do not understand when commentators say something like, "This 265 score is more like a 240 score, given it's a small field."
I fail to see how the chasing team is going to win if they get 240. How is it possible for a score to actually be less than it is? It isn't like the chasing side are actually chasing a lower total. Both teams are playing at the same ground and on the same pitch. It is a hard fone for me to understand.
It is something I have never understood, and maybe someone on here can help.
