    You've never heard it? It means like, say you're trying to answer a question, and you nearly get it right, someone might say close but no cigar.

    lol. it's like a piss take of cricket i think. i mean because cricket is so pants and boring, and basically rubbish, when someone does something bad, or something bad happens you can say it's just not cricket (usually with a shake of the head)
    Ah...
    cricket is not pants and boring an basically rubbish :eek: Have you ever played it?!

    The definition was fine, it's the sayings fault.

    As for the cricket injury TK has sustained, as i've mentioned before, i've been hit in a pretty bad place whilst playing it.

    That's not right at all! It's just not cricket means it's not a very gentlemanly or fair thing to do - ie cheating is just not cricket. And crickets not rubbish at all. Unless you get hit in the *******s - then it's not so good
