At Mardyke Ground

We sat for a while in a home game of the Cork County Cricket Club.  Cricket has been played at the Mardyke since 1850, but the Club has only played there since its formation in 1874.  

The crew applauded politely; a lady next to us explained the sport to her daughter, and told tales of her grandfather's prowess.  The players were all elegantly decked in white.  No slobs there.

This is the planet's second most popular sport, yet it was the first game the Peregrinus crew has watched.  Provincials!
