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,
“Helloooooo Sid”
“Who’s that?”
“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.”

I always wondered why that's bad news... Sid gets to play the game he loves for all eternity, starting tomorrow. 

Maybe the bad news is that he's going to be run over by a bus first...? :D


There is a sequel to this joke...

After Sid dies, he plays cricket every day, and his team always wins by 1000 runs, day after day. After about a month or so, he remarks to Alf, "Alf, I'm getting awfully bored... I never imagined Heaven would be like this."

Alf replies, "I think I was mistaken, Sid... I don't believe we're in Heaven."
