Cricket Watchers Guide
Ask Amar Singh of the Merion Cricket Club about the game and he'll smile and tell you, "Some people think cricket is a religion, but they're wrong...cricket is the only religion". Ask most Americans what they think about it and you'll get a shrug or a blank stare or they'll probably tell you it's a game for weenies who break for mid-afternoon tea.

What is it about this game that confounds most Americans and creates cult-like devotees in just about every other English speaking country around the world? We decided to find out by spending an afternoon at the Merion Cricket Club pavilion watching a match or two during the 4th Annual Philadelphia Cricket Festival. If you want to find out what we did, choose from the menu below.
