Contrasting Styles Australia, when they're batting Accumulate the runs. England, on the other hand Are only there for fun. When it's our turn at the crease, The runs stay fairly static, It's the way our wickets tumble That's really quite dramatic.

The Tussle It's Yorksher curries v Lancashire pies, A steely fought fight for an annual prize. A modern day version of War of the Roses In which winner stands tall and proudly proposes Undisputedly, claims to their bragging rights And the chance to sleep sound in their beds at night, Whilst the losers sob into their beer And dream of successes next year. What then, is this mysterious sport With winners delighted and losers distraught? A hard combination of skill and sheer force, Why, rugby league, women's version, of course.

A gentle game Hot summer haze, play several days. Fluffy clouds billow, leather on willow. Fifth day it pours, call it a draw. Pick up the wickets, end of the cricket.

Red Card The card was red, it had to be, he broke his leg in places, three. The challenge reckless, no intent, stupid, feckless, no harm meant. Result was clear, the match was lost, the lad's career a heavy cost.

A Good Sport A studious sort, She had no time for sport, Or the chaps who showed sporting endeavour, Till, discovering sex, She discarded her specs, And had a great time, whensoever.

The short sighted cricketer
The batsman strolled up to the crease,
Stumbling and peering and prying,
Then took out a handsome glass piece,
And said,"Hang on, I'm getting my eye in."
