A GROUP of drivers thought they had a wicket idea as they played a game of cricket in the middle of a motorway traffic jam.
The six males spent around an hour competing in a team of two between Junction 11 to 10 off the M1 going toward London at around 6pm on Saturday.
One of the players, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “We were stuck in solid traffic for a while, and so we got out of the car.
“We were standing outside anyway just talking to each other because the traffic had been at a standstill for so long and we said we might as well play a game.
“Then one of the guys said about playing a game of cricket because they had a bat and ball, and it started from there.
“There was cheering on the side from the other people watching in their cars, and we even had one guy commentating and then we had an umpire as well.
“More and more people would randomly come out of their cars, we all didn’t know each other.
“But my team lost as I dropped a catch, but it was good fun anyway.
“Nobody was hurt and none of the cars were damaged.”
