Assunto:  what does he mean by that?
 
Mensagem:  Yup. Clear crystal now.

I was mistaken and suggested ´which´and ´knows´ taking for granted that the subject was ´cricket´... now, recognizing the inversion of the D. Object everything makes sense. Absolutely.

BTW, is "absolutely" used only in negative sentences/contexts? If so, it´s slightly diff. from Portuguese, right?

You´re ABSOLUTELY right = You´re DEAD right (???)

or

Are you coming?
Absolutely [not].
