Here is something fun, from a reader and friend in London (slightly edited):
The Vatican Cricket Team and the Archbishop of Canterbury’s 11 combined to form a Christian Team which played against a multi-faith team made up of Jews Muslims, Sikh and Hindus at the nursery ground at Lord’s today.
The Christian team batted first and in 20 overs scored a mammoth 185 for 4 wickets, which the multi-faith team could not best.
The Vatican team also played against Stonyhurst College yesterday and won.
It’s scheduled to play another game tomorrow at Windsor Castle against the Queen’s Guards, with Her Majesty hosting the team to tea afterwards.
It was a good afternoon of cricket and good spirits. Gin and tonic mainly. With dropped catches by the Christians followed by shouts for ‘excommunication’ of the poor fielder.
Here’s a video I made for Your Reverence.
