A Pakistani batsman was taking the long walk back to the pavillion, after being dismissed for a first ball duck. Just as he was entering the gates, he met the new batsman walking in. "Tough Luck, Bhaijaan", remarked the rookie, with a definite smirk. "Yes dear, nothing is worse than being the one to be in the middle of a hat-trick", replied the veteran!!

Miss Knit misses it all !!

The scene, Melbourne. The year, 1920-'21. A certain Mrs. Park was sitting in the VIP enclosure, placidly knitting away. At one point, she fumbled and dropped her ball of wool. She bent, picked it up, dusted it off, and looked up. And realised that she had missed the entire international career of her husband, Roy Parks! The poor bloke, debuting in that game between England and Australia, was bowled by the only ball he ever faced in international cricket.

A Veree English Rain

There was a long drought in Central Africa. The witch doctor had tried all his rainmaking dances, imprecations, but to no avail.
One of the elders observed that rain was never a problem in England, so why not send the witch doctor to London to learn the secret.

Off he went to England, learned the secret, and returned to the tribe.

He informed the leaders that these crazy white men had a big paddock of grass enclosed by a white picket fence.

In the middle were two lots of sticks driven into the ground. Two men, each with a club, stood next to these sticks and waited for a lot of other men to spread themselves all over the paddock. Then two more men, wearing black trousers, four sweaters and six hats, came out to keep a close watch on the men with the clubs. Then one man got a red rock and threw it at one of the fellers with a club. AND DOWN CAME THE RAIN!
