Question one: You have been selected for your
long-established cricket team. On the day of the match you remember
that you have also been asked to take part in a pub Quizz Nite with
literary people (I think we all know what that means).
(1) play cricket as agreed, or
(2) submit a snivelling email to the hard-pressed captain saying
you’ll turn up if you really must but the Quizz Nite does look fun?
Question two: Monday is a public holiday. What day is
Not all the Fallopians got these questions right, employment took a
further toll, and we took the field with 6 players.
One was Zac Curtis, a guest from New Zealand, who scored a
powerful and cultured 43, approximately 84.313% of his side’s runs.
Justin Roy maintained the honour of the older players with a
second-best score of 3.
Simon Hemelryck achieved a carefully crafted 1. Peter Frisby hit
the night’s best nought, unbeaten after 7 deliveries.
Would it be enough?
