I think I prefer to watch cricket being played, as opposed to trying to play it myself. Especially when playing with young co-workers, most of whom are young enough to be my sons (if I lived in Arkansas or Alabama, and never graduated from a high fertility high school) - several actually are as old as my son!
A week later, the palm of my hand is healed up, the knee is all scabbed up and healing nicely. The liquid gelled alcohol Purell I applied to my knee in the Bangalore hotel brought a new level of topical pain that I'd been previously, blissfully, unaware. I was glad that I took a tube of topical antibiotic ointment and latex free band-aids as well, to avoid a nasty staph infection.
So the next chance I get to PLAY Cricket, I will refrain and instead, WATCH it and enjoy a cool refreshing drink instead.
