A Constructive Remembrance Of The September 11 Attacks

BBC News is reporting on the first really helpful memorial about which we’ve heard.

Seems some local religious leaders are getting together to play some cricket.

Local Christian clergy and Muslim imams will play each other in a Twenty20 cricket match at Grace Road, home of cup winners Leicestershire.

In addition to the Christians and Muslims on the pitch, the match will be overseen by Hindu and Jewish umpires.

The Right Reverend Tim Stevens, Bishop of Leicester, said it was vital to mark the 9/11 events in a positive way.

It’s good to see local leaders of different faiths meeting on the field of sport, rather than the field of battle. This is positive leadership, something to be emulated, for sure.

The Christian and Muslim teams first met in a football match earlier in 2006, where the imams won 5-0. It was decided to have a rematch in a different sport.

Ouch. Looks like good sports all around, though.

If you plan to attend, the cricket match is scheduled for 1600 BST tomorrow, Grace Road, Leicestershire.

Now if we could just figure out the rules of cricket, which barely even seem to be in English…

Although all 11 players have the chance to bat, the team are “all out” when 10 wickets have fallen as the “not out” batsman is left without a team-mate at the other end of the wicket.

Ummm.. ok.

The uncommon methods, but not unheard of, are ‘hit wicket’ – when a batsman removes his or her own bails – and ‘handled the ball’ – when he handles the ball without permission from the fielding side.

Are we sure this isn’t porn?

    That rule makes perfect sense. If you watch a cricket match you’ll see that there’s a batsman at either end of the strip. That’s so that, every time someone makes a single run, we don’t have to wait for them to jog back to their starting point. Saves time.

    Now, if there are 11 people on the team, and 10 have been bowled out, are you going to be able to muster the requisite pair of batsmen? I think not.

    Lifewish,

    “If you watch a cricket match…”

    And herein lies the crux of the matter. As far as I know, cricket doesn’t air here.

    We did get to see a bit of one match from very far away while we were in Bath (I think that’s when we saw it), but from a good half mile away 15 minutes of a cricket match wasn’t very helpful.

    I’ve always been fascinated with what little teeny weeny snippets I’ve seen, but it’s totally alien to us Yanks who can’t even watch it on the tele.

    Reading the rules might be productive if we could watch a match or two. Hell, we can’t even tell you what a “wicket” IS, let alone what it’s function is.

    It’s hard to understand a sentence if you don’t understand all the words, if that makes any sense.
