Cricket in Heaven

Two guys, Arun and Sumit, are sitting on a park bench feeding pigeons and talking about Cricket, like they do every day. Arun turns to Sumit and says, "Do you think there's cricket in heaven?"
Sumit thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno. But let's make a deal: if I die first, I'll come back and tell you if there's cricket in heaven, and if you die first, you do the same."

They shake on it and sadly, a few months later, poor Arun passes on in an accident . One day soon afterward, Sumit is sitting there feeding the pigeons by himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sumit... Sumit..."

Sumit responds, "Arun! Is that you?"

"Yes it is, Sumit," whispers Arun's ghost.

Sumit, still amazed, asks, "So, is there cricket in heaven?"

"Well," says Arun, "I've got good news and bad news."

"Gimme the good news first," says Sumit.

Arun says, "Well... there is cricket in heaven."

Sumit says, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin that!?"

Arun sighs and whispers, "You're Opening the batting on Friday."
