Bowled over

Apparently cricket can make you a nicer person (the England Cricket team must be a good bunch).  StreetChance, a project aimed at bringing cricket to disadvantaged communities in London, has found that the game can bring down racial barriers and improve discipline. It's also a brilliant way to prevent young people from hanging around the streets and getting bored. It's even initiated contact between rival communities. A great idea.

Come on England and best of luck at the Oval!
