Monday Mirth: The Best Cricket Jokes On The Web

It’s time for a change of pace today. I’ve scoured the internet to find the best cricket jokes and I’ve unearthed the following funnies. Obviously I’ve tweaked them here and there to give them a distinct TFT flavour. Enjoy …

I kept wondering why the cricket ball was looking bigger and bigger. And then it hit me.


Pinocchio, Snow White, and Superman go out for a stroll one day.
They soon come across a sign:
Beauty contest to find the most beautiful woman in the world …
“I’m entering” said Snow White.
Half an hour later she returns and they ask “How’d ya get on?”

“1st Place!” says Snow White smiling.

They continue walking and see another sign:
Contest to find the world’s strongest man
“I’m entering,” says Superman.
Half an hour he returns and they ask him “How’d ya get on?””

“1st place” boasts an ecstatic Superman.

They continue walking and see yet another sign:
Contest to find the world’s biggest liar

Half an hour he returns with tears in his eyes…
“What happened?” they enquire
“Who the f–k is Colin Graves?” asks Pinocchio.

  • Just a couple of Tim Viners I came across recently.

    Why do cricket grounds have floodlights.
    Because bats are nocturnal.

    Local cricket team went on tour abroad but didn’t need jabs.
    They never catch anything.

    More about footie than cricket the best VAR rant to the tune of Nick Nack Paddywack.

    VAR you’re so crap,
    Take a hint and don’t come back,
    With a burn those monitors before we die of shame,
    Flags and Whistles take back the game.

    A wishful thinking cricket version of Jack and Jill.

    Colin and Tom went up the Hill,
    To play their Hundred or Shorter,
    They both fell down as they thrashed around,
    They should have stuck to the water.

    • Two favourite football chants from a few years back were Arsenal’s (to ‘Blame it on the Boogie’) “Don’t blame it on the referee/don’t blame it on the injuries/ don’t blame it on Henry/Blame it on Eboue” and Everton’s “Leighton Baines, I bet you think this song is about you”.

      Funniest things in cricket I can remember were Paul Downton’s interviews.

  • Did you hear about the team who didn’t win a proper game for over a year and kept all the same coaches….oh crap that actually happened!
