  1. So the first sentence missuses the word literally. Cricket has not literally been there and back. There and back in this context does NOT mean that it literally has gone somewhere and then come back.

    I don’t like being the guy that points stuff like this out, but this is an article that got published by BU Today. It’s just a little embarrassing to have literally (note the correct usage) the first sentence of an article have a very obvious error. I know it’s not a major article, just let’s try to have some pride. I would hope there is some sort of editorial process at BU Today, so I wonder how many people whose job it is to catch these types of things read this and didn’t catch it.

  2. Having spent some schooling time in England, I am literally thrilled to hear about cricket having a ‘place’ in the BU community.
    I was a touch disheartened to see that the players were depicted on Harvard’s Jordan Field with the big H in the background! Maybe cricket has been there and back at BU, but apparently not yet on BU turf!

  3. Having seen the great Viv Richards and Ian Botham play, I love the idea of playing intercollegiate cricket in the US.

    Small twchnical point: The video identifies only 2 ways of getting out, and there is at least one other — “LBW” (Leg Before Wicket.)

    Good Luck!!
