Hello, everybody! Can you explain to me in what meaning the word cricket is used in the following sentence or what the metaphore means? Would it be cricket for Brown to try to stay on, Dimbleby asked. The difficulty with this argument is that two teams are not playing cricket, and once you put Labour and the Liberal Democrat seats together, the yellow-red alliance has more seats than the Tories and far more of the popular vote. (The Guardian) Thanks!
