There are many variations on this joke...
Alf and Sid, both in their nineties, used to meet every morning at the park to talk about old times and their shared passion for cricket.
“D’you think they play cricket in Heaven?” asked Alf.
“Dunno” said Sid, “but I tell you what, the first of us that gets there should let the other one know.”
A few months passed and Alf popped his clogs.
Sid carried on going to the park and one day he heard a voice,
“It’s Alf. You can’t see me Sid, but I can see you.”
“Alf” said Sid, “do they play cricket in heaven?”
“Well I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we do play cricket in Heaven. The bad news is that you are in the first eleven tomorrow.”
