Cricket and tea

Since we are now quite cricket mad, there is an important question that many non-cricketers will want answered: what do cricketers eat at tea? Do they actually drink tea?

Tea is a vitally important part of the game, some clubs devote more space on their websites to the tea than anything else.

There does not seem to be a single answer but it appears that in English amateur cricket, a combination of sandwiches, rolls, cakes and tea is common. There is an enormous variety ranging from the simple to the lavish. Some can be quite spectacular.

I'm not sure what they have on the subcontinent, though.
