I believe the answer is:

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'initially not much good getting the runs?' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'cricket sides including english going extra day' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'english' could be 'e' (abbreviation) and 'e' is located in the answer.
'going' could be 'on' (both can mean functioning or activated) and 'on' is found within the answer.
'day' could be 'd' and 'd' is found within the answer.
The remaining letters 'legge' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for one-legged that I've seen is "Having but a single pin".)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
