When immigrants from the West Indies, India, Pakistan and England settle in Fernwood, New Jersey, USA, they yearn to play the game of their youth: cricket. But what obstacles they face. Not only must captain Frederick A. Watkins fight with his American wife Gina to spend his weekends on the cricket field, he and his rag-tag team must vie with local officials who prefer Little League baseball teams to play on their field. Add in local prejudices, political opportunists, the problems of aging players, personal foibles, and the pull of family - it's a real sticky wicket.
