A sport that can be a gentleman's hobby, or a stepping stone to a further political career.

More likely to be privately educated than peers in the House of Lords

A 2019 British report[1] found that men’s cricket in England was skewed towards those who attended private schools. The national team at the time, with a 43% fee-paying make-up, made the top 10 professions with the highest independent school attendance. The 82% make-up of the England side puts it comfortably at the top, looming over High Court judges and the House of Lords, and peering down upon diplomats and the Armed Forces.
