Yesterday we attended our first ever live cricket match. Ten cruisers ended up going in our group. Six Americans, three Australians, and one Canadian. Five of us were crickets virgins.

Mid morning there was the official break for tea. We didn't actually see anyone drinking tea but that is what the break is for.
|Light rain lasted all of 5 mins|

|Still England batting|
As you can imagine, the places really filled up after noon, being a national holiday and all. Our group opted to meet up again during the afternoon tea break. We all decided we had seen enough and called for a cab. The score was really low for a cricket match - something like 83-3 England because of course they were batting first and still batting when we left. West Indies didn't even get to bat until well into the next day.

Additional Score Update - England won the Grenada test match by 9 wickets. Play starts in Barbados May 1st. Go West Indies!!!
