Famous quotes containing the words team and/or cricket:

    Is my team ploughing,
    That I was used to drive
    And hear the harness jingle
    When I was man alive?
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    All cries are thin and terse;
    The field has droned the summer’s final mass;
    A cricket like a dwindled hearse
    Crawls from the dry grass.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)
