Cameroon cricket on the up

It's perhaps unlikely to imagine cricket making much of an impact in a football-crazed country such as Cameroon. But, after recognition from the state, the sport is beginning to grow at quite a rate, as reported by allafrica.com:

The establishment of the game in Cameroon has been thanks to support from the British government through its embassy in Yaounde which has always provided logistic support to the federation. The British High Commissioner to Cameroon, Syd Madicott, was on the field of play in the match against Cameroon, just to drum-up support for the Game which like football, originated from his country.
