I would guess that if you scent the crickets with a mouse or put them in a bag full of pinkys and shake it around that you may just be lucky enough to get them to eat a cricket, you might want to pull the crickets legs off so it can't run away.

My real advice would be, make sure that the snake has a hiding spot on the warm and cool side of the tank,then leave it alone for a week or so and let it get used to its surroundings. then try feeding it live hopper mice. once the snake is less stressed it will most likely eat without any problems. forget about the crickets and check out some localityrosy sites for loads of info.
