Sports-minded Bay Area seniors who don’t know a batsman from a dink should check out the cricket action around here. Even though its recent surge in popularity has been fueled by the growing South Asian community it has been played locally since 1881. There is a surprisingly active league especially in the South Bay during the summer. Check their upcoming schedule and remember that the games marked “45” can last up to five or six hours. Who knew there was a whole variation of the game using tennis balls and it has its own Bay Area league, too?
