Mr Southey reduced the Vauxhall Cavaliers to rusty wrecks with a 50 in
double quick time. Mr Barrass (junior) drove smoothly to 40, and the OFs
screeched off with 157.
Vauxhall Cavaliers were never known for acceleration
off the mark, and saw the Fallopians' exhausts disappearing from view.
were especially confused by Mr Barrass (senior)'s bowling, stepping aside to
meet the next leg-side full toss only to find the ball going in a straight
line, or carefully steering off-side wides on to their stumps.
Alex ended the game in entertaining fashion, drilling his only ball directly
through the forehead of Mr Barrass (senior), then continuing to charge up
and down the pitch long after the stumps had been removed and the other
players had shaken hands.
Nice little runners, these Vauxhall Cavaliers, but
a service may be due.
