Of course a passion of the Bible is enriched by a passion for cricket. Both, for example, involvement considerable hermeneutical challenges (will that pitch take spin on the last day?). And, as we see in this comment on Cricinfo, the Bible contributes much to the commentary on cricket:
"Mushtaque points out that Smith fell two runs short of a truly beastly number of career runs. He's currently on 6664 ..."
Smith here is Graham Smith, South African captain, and the comment comes after a marvellous knock against England for 183!
