Not Cricket, But So What

I can't believe I got to the age of 40 before seeing my very first game of Diamond Cricket.

Take two large teams of children - set out four wickets in a diamond - give four of the kids plastic cricket bats, and then put a teacher in the middle to bowl or throw a plastic ball at whatever wicket (or child) they feel like.

Total mayhem on a scale that makes 20/20 Cricket seem pedestrian. Would definitely pay to see it played at Test level by the England and West Indies Under 12s.
