Le Criquet

Disturbing news reaches me that cricket is taking off in France. Of course France is the reigning Olympic silver medallist (cricket was last an Olympic sport at the 1900 games) but really.

It seems that while the ICC, cricket's ruling body, has been whingeing about lack of funds it has wasted donated some €250,000 to support cricket in France. In addition the French government is promoting the game in 200 schools.

Call me wrong, call me chauvinist (and Chauvin was a Frenchman) but I don't think they've got the temperament.
