Cave Cricket | World's First Underground Cricket Match at Honister Slate Mine
Played in Honister Slate Mine in the Lake District by teams from Caldbeck and Threlkeld, it was the world’s first underground match. The pitch was 600m (2,000ft) inside the mine, the bails were pieces of slate and the wicket was a mesh mat. The game is one of many unusual venues the teams have played in to raise money to fix Threlkeld Cricket Club’s flood-damaged ground. The match was won by Caldbeck Village.
