Everyone that has ever played cricket will have come across a village cricketer, a player of a certain standard that can be easily identified as different from his snooty betters at the posh club down the road. The Village Cricketer today invites you help paint  a picture of the typical village cricketer by asking the simple question – what is village?

Some starters below, please leave your comments and  please keep it clean!

  1. Playing in black trainers
  2. Wearing a replica England shirt as part of your whites
  3. The village cricketer will have a village nickname, like ‘The Walrus’
  4. Smoking a cigarette while doing square leg umpiring duties
  5. Shouting ‘in’ at the end of every run
