As we approached Singida late in the afternoon, we saw a small group of young children playing with small ball on the roadside. Stopping for a quick kickabout, we saw that their ball was made from a bundle of old plastic bags stuffed into an old sock which had then been folded back on itself and stitched – giving it a remarkable resemblance to a cricket ball.
