Cricket in the Road

Cricket in the Road
by Austin Mitchell.
We used to play cricket anywhere
In gullies, on banks, in the road, anywhere.
With anything for a ball or bat
We used to call it bowl for a bat.
Age was no barrier to playing.
The old and the young were playing.
There were no holidays without a cricket game
And everybody came out to watch the game.
We used to go miles to watch a game
To watch the great players play the game
We still marvel at the batting of those great players
The catches they took, those great players. We are glad that the game is still being played.
Maybe not like how it used to be played.
But it is good to see youngsters playing the game
Like how those of old used to play the game
