How did they ever invent the game?

With my 18 month sabbatical to the motherland almost over, I will go home to Australia with only one regret - that I never got to play a game of cricket.

However, this is not through lack of trying. I had games booked in for various Cambridge, London and other shire teams. But it was not to be. Six from six games were rained out. That's a 100% strike rate. It got to the stage of knowing that if I had a game of cricket planned, I should take my umbrella.

How did England ever invent this game? No wonder they have to import half their players from countries where there is some actual sun!
