Yale Student Reports Cricket on Campus
|Location||New EnglandNew England|
|Immediacy of Report|
|Age of Players|
A student at Yale University reports that cricket and football are played on campus [need cite]. Lester, however, says that he doubts the student saw English cricket, and that, given that the site is CT, it was probably wicket. Lester notes that wicket involved sides of 30 to 35 players, and was played in an alley 75 feet long, and with oversized bats.
