We can only imagine how the conversation went.
(SUNDAY 5th JUNE. 10-30AM. A Surrey village green)
Addington Village Cricket Captain: Hello Bob
St.Lukes Village Cricket Captain: Hi Gerry.
You ready for a damn good thrashing today! (chortles)
AVCC: (chortles too) You bet!
Listen Bob. We’ve got this teenage Pakistani lad who wants a game.
I promised his dad.
You ok with him having a swing?
StLVCC: Pakistani hey? As long as it’s not Imran Khan!
(both chortle, one less convincingly than the other)
AVCC: We’ll probably give him a bowl before lunch, and see how he gets on.
If we win the toss?!
StLVCC: You always do Gerry! You always do.
(2-37PM. Early Tea. A Surrey village green)
St.LVCC: Four wickets and sixty runs already eh, Bob?
Which part of Pakistan did you say he was from?
AVCC: Carshalton Gerry.
