Let Cricket be freed from the Tommies!!

An interesting thought just struck me!! The headline "SA resumes batting after tea" seems ridiculous to me. Not all cricket drinking nations are tea-loving! In fact tea itself has chinese roots and there is no history (ever) of the chinese playing cricket!!

Why should we continue to call the post-lunch break of a test match the "tea" break!!

I have an idea for breaking this - one of the soda sponsors should just stamp down calling it something else and free the free cricketing world from this relic of cricket's colonial roots!
