Yesterday I volunteered to be the scorer at a cricket match. The opposing team’s score kindly showed me how to do it.

As I sat in the rain, confused by the scoresheet and trying to distinguish between zero runs “.” and a no ball “0”, I thought “there has to be a better way”.

However before revolutionizing the world of cricket scoring the first question must be, how do I best represent a score?

Typing in “xml representation of cricket scores into Google” yields little but I did find one very useful site

If you know of any others please tell me.
