Inside A Cricket Equipment Factory
Cricket is a game not to everyone's liking. It is often slow paced, the players break for tea and a match can last for days. However, during the next 6 weeks cricket is number one in countries that adore the sport, mainly former English colonies and some new addition such as Kenya and The Netherlands. The Cricket World Cup is being held in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh from February 19th till April 2nd. The main equipment used in cricket are a hard red ball and a square wooden bat. Often made by hand in little Indian factories such as this one.
