Cricket in the middle of the sea

Every year two yacht clubs meet for a game of cricket on a sandbank that forms on very low spring tides... It has to be seen to be believed!

Wonder if they get in a test match or just a 20. 20?

If you think you are hearing crickets in the middle of the sea, it is probably shrimp. Put a net over and see if you can catch some!

Re: Cricket in the middle of the sea

We have had a cricket on board since we launched in Grenada about Nov 15. He was quiet for 2 night about a week ago but is now back in action.

My Wife named him “Chirpie.”

We really missed him those 2 nights he was silent.
