When a cricket fan goes to India…


It’s August in Edinburgh and it’s the fringe. Whilst I continue with my hypocritical treatment of people pushing flyers into my face (hell, I was one of those people once), there’s one person whose shows I always make sure I go and catch.

My little brother.

This year his show is about him getting fed up with prancing around in a pink kilt and going round India trying to pass himself off as a cricket commentator. I went last night, and even if I’m biased (no kidding!) it was pretty funny, and the soldout audience were killing themselves laughing. Truth is stranger than fiction.

So, if you’re in and around Edinburgh during the fringe, and even if you’re not particularly interested in cricket, go and see it.

There’s not been much reference to cricket in music but this is one very fine example.

Oh, and last year’s Duckworth Lewis album too…
