Cricket is like religion in Pakistan. In Nigeria, it comes next to soccer. But for some strange reason, it felt weird to watch the game played by the school’s expat staff today with Alan Jackson warbling Chattahochee in the background. Doesn’t mean we didn’t have fun. Many of the players have never played cricket before, and some claimed they have never even seen it played. And when you’re dealing with a lot of folks who are only familar with baseball or softball, explaining cricket is even harder, because the same terms mean something else. But who cares when everyone is having fun, even if half the audience don’t know what’s going on!
