Sample text

Now our chaps wanted another crack at them. B. Benjamin, a small rotund Jew wearing the biggest diamond I had ever seen, and this time the team consisted of A. H. G. Macartney, W. L. A. S. N. R. Mayne, J. Down and G. Campbell of South Australia. , Philadelphia, in August 1913. H. Clark scored a brilliant 82 and in the Australians’ second innings collected six for 38 with his off-breaks. It was here that I saw the best fielding in my life. We had only three men bowled out in two innings. P. O’Neill took ten slip catches.

No Christmas carol was complete without young Mailey on this instrument. The proprietor of the music shop had such faith in me that he would allow me to take a mouth organ and pay for it after I had finished my house-to-house collection.

Arriving at the wicket, he bent his bat handle almost to a right angle, walked up the pitch, prodded about six yards of it, returned to the batting crease and asked the umpire for ‘two legs’, took a quick glance in the direction of fine leg, shrugged his shoulders again and took up his stance. I was called to bowl sooner than I had expected. I suspect now that Harry Goddard changed his mind and decided to put me out of my misery early in the piece. Did I ever bowl that first ball? I don’t remember.
