Cricket in Science Fiction

Seeing as the entire country is reaching a crescendo of cricket mania I thought I try and find some Science Fiction that involved cricket...

...and failed bar a few mentions on Infinity Plus.

Anyone know of any Cricketing SF stories?


A google search of the Locus Index (search term: site:www.locusmag.com cricket) yielded some titles that are from an antholgy of stories set in "the world of Cricket". See http://www.locusmag.com/index/t207.html#A22799.

"nine original ghost stories set in the world of cricket"

LOL. Haunted pavillions and weird tasing cucumber sandwiches?

My mate John has just reminded me that The HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy has some reference to cricket as well. (Although it's something like pan-galactice betelgeusian astro cricket, I'll have to look up the exact term).
