    For the Americans among us, 'cricket' is a summer game popular in Britain, south Asia, the Caribbean and the Antipodes. It's quite like baseball, but worse.

    Why does everybody always forget about Africa? Cricket is very popular in South Africa. We just hosted the Indian (not American Indian) Premier League due to political violence in India. IPL viewer figures around 7 to 8 million people per match.

    Sorry: fair point. My French colleague described it as 'just a game for the English' the other day, so I'm glad you've added another country to the list. Do other countries in the region play? I imagine some in east Africa?
