With everything that has passed before it was almost inevitable that;

  • I would probably want to invent a game
  • It would probably involve music
  • It may well involve cricket

Following a period of intense development; when I obviously had far too much time on my hands, it was ‘showcased’ as part of our family Christmas get together. It was in the form of a music quiz and this was the birth of ‘Pop Cricket’.
