I was talking to my husband and son (both Americans) about the death of George Bush senior and I said that my Mum would have said that he had a good innings. They both stared at me like I was crazy. I know Mum uses it - and I heard it a lot growing up - and it means they had a really long life. Does anyone else use this? Or have heard it? I know it has to do with cricket, which is why husband and son probably haven't heard of it.
