    gritty

    Barring Ravindu Shah’s gritty 71 and Thomas Odoyo’s 42, the 2003 World Cup semi-finalists were not up to the task. Kenya now have a tough ask to beat England in order to make the next round of cricket’s showpiece event.

    I think [barring = except] [Am I right?]
    Also, I didn't understand the meaning of `gritty' in the dictionaries.
    So, please explain it.
