Yesterday, Jarrod over at Cricket With Balls answered the age old question: Is Cricket Gay? And he concluded that cricket is “like that old androgynous person who lives at the end of your street who likes cats and John Coltrane.”
Today, inspired by Jarrod, and Sufjan Stevens, I will answer the even older question: what does cricket want?
*Cricket wants writers that can tell its stories Calypso music Captains’ innings Cricket wants sun soaked afternoons Pitches that dance A day five queue
It’s really that simple. Forget over rates, and formats, and the ICC, that’s just over thinking it all.
What cricket wants is to be played, to be loved, and to be remembered.
Oh, and a strong West Indies side.
