Quizz nite fiasco

Philip Barrass writes:

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).

Do you:
(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 Wednesday?

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.

51.

Would it be enough?

No.
