Village cricket match. Chitterne.Wilts. England

Cricket is the quintessential English summer game. Pitches are frequently overlooked by the parish church due to the ancient layout of English villages. A tent or, if the cricket club has had a successful fundraiser, a permanent pavillion, will serve tea, cakes, pies and sandwiches between innings. At the end of the match refreshments are usually taken at the nearest pub, where boasts about success or complaints about umpiring decisions will occupy many hours.
