Team A gets 280/3 Team B in the last ball or so gets 282/3. For anyone, cricket fan or otherwise who reads the one liner result will see that Team B smashed Team A by 7 wickets. Thats my issue. But all semantics, and IMHO a sports oddity
Cricket isn't a sport which can be summarised in a one liner. There is no way you can make it as simple to understand as rugby or athletics.
To many of us that is part of its appeal. If you want a game that can be understood without nuances then cricket isn't a game you should really be interested in.
I agree, but its nit about nuances, the whole point of my post is that the given score is not representative of the game score.
