But Baby It’s Cold Outside

Stop quibbling about the weather and play a game of cricket. 

As this engraving shows, in the winter of 1822/23 Captain William Parry and his expedition were pitching wickets on Igloolik Island.  So buck up , dig out the stumps (literally?) grab your bat from the shed and see if you can pick this slider.

For those looking for further punishment, Third Man offers Dean Martin for when a wicket falls.

Oh, and, AUSTRALIA BEWARE, Third Man’s daughter is landing in a few hours from now.  When the going gets tough, the ECB … eh, reach for reinforcements?
