AKA, what does a cricket ball taste like?
Shahid Afridi’s culinary curiosity has gotten me thinking: have you ever thought about how disgusting a cricket ball can end up after 50 overs of a cricket match? For one thing, at least half a dozen players have lathered on layers of spit on the thing, while the rest put on a dash of sweat before bowling it on a brown pitch.
Why on earth would you want to put this thing anywhere near your mouth? Especially when your side — at best — could end up with a series scoreline of 4-1? Was it worth it, Shahid?
