Animation. A U.I.C. production featuring Jerry the Troublesome Tyke - a cartoon dog.
"There's no need to look further than me for a Test Match bowler" said Jerry. "Watch me - and keep your eye on the ball." Jerry plays cricket with a man in a garden. It is possibly his new owner seen in "Never Say Die". Jerry does a few natty tricks with the cricket ball which impress his master. He makes it disappear and all sorts. The ball suddenly stops mid-air after his master has hit it. It then starts moving and hits Jerry. His master laughs. Jerry runs off. His master gets a few runs. Jerry runs to catch the ball then runs back with it.
Jerry says: "Look Here, 'obbs, go easy with the centuries!" - presumably a reference to Jack Hobbs. More play ensues. The ball gets hit near a chicken. The chicken eats it then runs into the coop. Jerry goes in after it and a fight ensues (the chicken coop bounces up and down.) Jerry grabs the chicken, runs back with it then throws it at the stumps shouting "out!" "Why? Where's the Ball" asks the man - "Inside the Chicken" laughs Jerry. His master falls down a hole in shock. Jerry laughs.
