While away an unseasonably warm autumn afternoon with these lively outdoor pastimes
A quintessentially English game that can be played on the village green – or your back garden.
Why we love itThe sound of leather on willow, grass stains on cricket whites, a ripple of applause… and afternoon tea.
The downsidePlay can be a little slow and drawn out for younger players, so you might want to opt for the French version (with underarm bowling).
Our favouritePaul Smith Cricket Ball (but it could be tricky to polish and there may be a risk of stripey stains).
Credit crunch optionOf course, any bat and any ball would surely do. And yet somehow, it’s just not cricket.
