Cricket or shopping
The two commuters were talking on the train. 'I was going to go to the Test Match on Saturday,' said one, 'but you know how crowded the trains get, then there's the struggle to get in, and there's always the chance it might rain and . . .'
'I know,' said the other.
'I've got to go shopping with the wife, too!'
First cricket matchA man was in a pub, describing his first cricket match to his mates.
'Well,' he said, 'these two old men in white coats come out, followed by eleven more, also in white.
Then a couple of fellows with small planks of wood come out, one of the other lot threw a ball at him, he took a swipe at it, and if I 'adn't pushed the wife in the way, it would have smashed me right in the face!'
Cricket down under
George and his wife were staying up to listen to the cricket report from Australia which finally came through.
'Ninety six all out!' moaned George.
'I don't know what more to expect,' replied his wife. 'Our boys aren't used to playing in the middle of the night!'
1st wife: 'Did you manage to get away from cricket at your wedding?'
2nd wife: 'Don't talk to me about it. I thought it was a bad sign when we had to enter under an arch of cricket bats, but it got worse.'
1st wife: 'What happened?'
2nd wife: 'The choir sang The Bails of St. Mary's!'
What does your husband do
The two cricketers' wives were talking.
'What does your husband do?' 'He's a cricketer.'
'So's mine. Who does your play for?'
'Well, I think it's the United Nations. He says he's always bowling Chinamen.'
All they think about...
The cricketers' wives were talking. 'My husband is worried.'
'He says if he gets another duck he'll get the chop.'
'Men. All they think about is their stomachs!'
