Who knows? Had he survived he might have come in contact with the game and grown to love it.
Regrettably Elvis's opportunities to familiarise himself with cricket were limited.

Instead he had to hang around the terminal building drinking coffee, listening to the clamour of his screaming fans outside and and talking to the press. Had he come in June, he could have popped across to the club for a net.
Who knows how frustrated he must have felt? All Shook Up at least.
Prestwick and Elvis - it could have been something. For Prestwick Cricket Club had West Indian George Reifer as their professional in the 1990s. George had a twin brother, also a cricketer who played briefly for Hampshire. He died in 2011. His name was Elvis Reifer. He is only Elvis in Wisden.
Elvis may well have left the building - but he still has his impact on cricket. For no Test Match is complete nowadays without the statutory quota of Elvis impersonators.
