i don't like cricket

It's raining, it's pouring, and the cricket updates on the BBC are wandering off piste. Between 11.00 and 14.30 there is quite a lot about cricket music. There's an interview with Neil Hannon of Divine Comedy, whose Duckworth-Lewis method is a cricket song-cycle. There is When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease by Roy Harper, which is lovely. Of course, there are Howzat and 19 Not Out (still funny - N-n-n-n-346; side-on, side-on).*

*If you are well young, contextualise 19 Not Out here. It's still a good song.
