In a local game. the visiting side had two fearsome fast bowlers.
Everybody was terrified of
them , none more so that the opening bat for the home team. He crept ,
shaking , to the crease and
awaited the first ball. The bowler thundered up to the crease and hurled
down a scorcher. The batsman
waved his bat at it and it was fielded at mid-on. Immediately, he walked
for the pavilion.
'Where are you going?' cried the bowler. 'He caught it on first bounce.'
'Looked good enough to me' replied the retreating batsman.
