A cricket fighting ring was smashed recently as police swooped on a cafeteria in West Shanghai and arrested 66 enthusiasts.
Amongst the arrested was Shanghai’s Number 1 Cricket Teaser, a man surnamed Lin.
“Lin was famous among cricket fanciers. If he teased a cricket he could make it angry enough to beat even a stronger opponent” said one of the arresting officers, clutching an autograph book.
Rumours of an upcoming movie called “Lin: Cricket Teaser Of Doom” starring Steven Seagal are unconfirmed.
