How do I know if my team is winning?

 
It's not always easy to work out what's going on How do I know if my team is winning?
It's difficult in cricket, because loads can change during a game, but as a rough guide:

One-day cricket If your team scores more than 250 runs that's good; if they score more than 300 that's brilliant.

If your team is bowling and is able to get a team all out for less than 200 runs they've bowled well; less than 100 is superb.

Test cricket If your team is the one to bat first, then a score of more than 400 runs in their first innings is good they shouldn't lose. If they score more than 600 runs, then they should be the winners.

If your team is bowling first, then getting the other team all out for less then 300 is a good effort. If the opposition are all out for less than 150, then your team should be able to win.

Quite often in cricket in the longer form of the game the result of the match is a draw.
