Off the Field

We are mostly used to seeing them playing on the field and we must admit we like them best in their uniforms. However, we got a little curious and wanted to see how they are without the bat and the ball. These are some of our favorite cricket stars quite off the field.

Making of the Cricket Ball

A long time ago, during the middle ages, an English shepherd threw a ball made of rags and wool at a certain something. Another playfully defended that certain something with his crooked staff. Of course, this game of two did not singularly evolve into modern cricket but it makes sense to assume that this was the game at its most primitive stage. And the ball of rags and wool was arguably the first Cricket ball.

Today, the best Cricket balls are still manufactured by hand but it’s far more complex than what the old shepherd made.

Cricket & Cupcakes

India’s playing? Apart from going out to a Sports bar or reclining on the sofa with the T.V. remote in hand, how else do you support the team? Surprisingly, Cricket cupcakes are unusually good when teamed with your celebratory alcoholic concoctions. And when India wins and if some cupcakes are still there in the fridge, you can take them out for a grand celebration.

Here’s what you’ll need to make what one of our colleagues made for the match yesterday. She called them the ‘Cinnapple Muffins’. They were delicious.

  • 1 Egg for 6 cupcakes
  • 1 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of castor sugar
  • 3/4 cup of apples
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

The Steps:

  • Line the cupcake tray with cup cake holders.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • Whisk the egg well for 5 minutes.
  • Add the milk and oil to the whisked egg.
  • Add all the dry ingredients to the mixture of the egg, milk and oil.
  • Add the cut pieces of apples with the honey and vanilla essence.
  • Pour the mixture into the cup cake holders.
  • Cook for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees in the oven
  • Frost when the cupcakes are completely cool.

Serve them with some Cricket-icing.
