How Interesting Is a Cricket Match?
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v25 n3 p149-160 2006
Even for those passionate about both cricket and maths, each can have their dull moments.

It is hoped that readers will become more interested in at least one or the other, and preferably both!
