Watching cricket on the village green

What could be more typical of English village life than watching cricket on the green? I watched a match on Saturday afternoon between the local cricket club and a team made up mostly of youngsters, including two girls, and captained by the best bowler of all time, Shane Warne. This video shows Shane getting off the mark with a single. The next delivery went for six and the ball was lost in the garden of one of the houses on Ham Common. He hit a few more sixes and fours before being skying a catch off the bowling of the youngest player on the field.
