Here are two quotes that sum up my relationship with the game of cricket.

“Cricket makes no sense to me. I find it beautiful to watch and I like that they break for tea. That is very cool, but I don’t understand. My friends from The Clash tried to explain it years and years ago, but I didn’t understand what they were talking about.” – Jim Jarmusch

“I agree with Jim Jarmusch, and I wish I was friends with The Clash” – Me

I fear this makes me an ugly American, so I’m playing with the possibility of reading a few of the books on Shehan Karunatilaka’s list of top 10 cricket books over at The Guardian.
