Australian Cricket


Two ninety year old men, Nev and Vic, have been friends all their lives.

It seems that Vic is dying, and so Nev comes to visit him Every day.

β€œVic,” says Nev, β€œYou know how we have both loved cricket all our lives, and how we played together for so many years.

Vic, you have to do me one favour.

When you get to Heaven, and I know you will go to Heaven, Somehow you’ve got to let me know if there’s cricket in Heaven.”

Vic looks up at Nev from his death bed, and says, β€œNev, you’ve been my best friend many years.

This favour, if it is at all possible, I’ll do for you.”

And shortly after that, Vic passes on.

It is midnight a couple of nights later.

Nev is sound asleep when he is awakened by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calls out to him, β€œNev….Nev….”.
β€œWho is it?” says Nev sitting up suddenly. β€œWho is it?”
β€œNev, it’s me, Vic.”

β€œCome on. You’re not Vic. Vic just died.”

β€œI’m telling you,” insists the voice. β€œIt’s me, Vic!”
β€œVic? Is that really you? Where are you?”
β€œI’m in heaven,” says Vic , β€œand I’ve got to tell you, I’ve got really good news and a little bad news.”

β€œSo, tell me the good news first,” says Nev.

β€œThe good news is that there is cricket in heaven.

Better yet, all our old buddies who’ve gone before us are there.

Better yet, we’re all young men again.

Better yet, it’s always spring time and it never rains or snows .

And best of all, we can play cricket all we want, and we never get tired!”
β€œReally?” says Nev, β€œThat is fantastic, wonderful beyond my wildest dreams!

But, what’s the bad news?”

Vic, β€œYou’re opening the batting next Tuesday”.

Australian Cricket in Heaven

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
