Criccer … I don’t know what else to call it. This was a game that is a cross between cricket and soccer, being played in the stadium/grounds near my home. The bowler throws the football and the batsman bats by kicking the football, and then runs. All the other rules are those of cricket, such as the batsman gets out if the football hits the wicket.


Then, I heard the announcer mention that this is an inter-school tournament, with “qualified referees.” When I left, the score was 12 runs for 7 wickets in 5 overs.
