Batsman and Wicket Keeper

The nervous young batsman was having a terrible time and was lucky to still be at the crease. During a lull, he stammered to the wicket keeper, 'Well, I expect you've seen worse players.'


He said 'I said I expect you've seen worse players.'

'I heard you the first time. I was just trying to think.'

Cricketer and Beer

In a country town match, the batsman was out first ball. 'Not like last week,' said the wicket keeper.

'No,' said the batsman. 'Last week I stayed in and got forty and when I got back all the beer was gone!'

Cricket Vampire

Mrs Jones: I'd like my son to be excused playing cricket. I don't think he should mix with that sort of person.

Teacher: How d'you mean?

Mrs Jones: Well; I distinctly heard him say that the man in the white coat was a vampire!

Bribe The Umpire

'I can't understand it,' said the captain. 'It was such an important game that I bribed the umpire and yet we still lost.'

'Terrible, isn't it,' a bowler agreed. 'It's getting so you can't trust anyone.'

Aliens and Cricket

Two aliens were visiting Earth to research the local customs.

They split up so that they could learn more in the time allowed.

When they met to share their knowledge, the first alien told of a religious ceremony it had seen.

"I went to a large green field shaped like a meteorite crater. Around the edges, several thousand worshippers gathered. Then two priests walk to the centre of the field to a rectangular area and hammer six spears into the ground, three at each end. Then eleven more priests walk out, clad in white robes. Then two high priests wielding clubs walk to the centre and one of the other priests starts throwing a red orb at the ones with the clubs."

"Gee," replied the other alien, "what happens next?"

"Then it begins to rain."

Cricket Explained

You have two sides- one out in the field and one in.

Each man that's in the side that's in goes out and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out.

When they are all out the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When both sides have been in and out including the not outs, THAT'S THE END OF THE GAME!


Devils Versus Angels Cricket Match

The Devils challenged the Angels to a game of cricket.

"But we've got all the cricketers," said the Angels.

"Yes. But we've got all the umpires!" exclaimed The Devils.
