Why is there no simple way to explain the scoring in cricket?

Alright folks, buckle up because explaining cricket scoring is like trying to decode hieroglyphics while juggling! The complexity comes from the myriad of ways to score runs, from singles to boundaries and everything in between. Then there's the added fun of wickets, overs, and innings to consider, which are like secret ingredients in this sporty potpourri. On top of that, toss in the different formats of the game - Test, One Day, and T20 - each with their own scoring nuances. It's like trying to explain the plot of a soap opera to someone who's missed 500 episodes - not impossible, but you're in for a wild ride!
