  • Description

    AN ENGLISH CRICKET TEAM IS CURRENTLY ON A FOUR-MATCH TOUR OF ROME. THE FIRST MATCH WAS PLAYED AGAINST THE ROME CLERGY AND RESULTED IN A WIN FOR THE ENGLISH TEAM WITH 105 RUNS AGAINST 75.

    ROMANS, NOTED FOR THEIR LOVE OF THE SPECTACULAR. HARDLY TURNED UP IN FORCE FOR THE FRIENDLY MATCH. THOSE THAT DID, WERE FASCINATED BY THE MYSTIQUE OF THE GAME THAT ENTHRALLS SO MUCH OF THE FORMER BRITISH EMPIRE, BUT PRESENTS LITTLE TO THE UNDISCERNING EYE.

    A LOYAL BAND OF CRICKET FANS TRIED TO EXPLAIN THE INTRICACIES OF THE GAME, BUT FOUND THEMSELVES DEFEATED BY THE LANGUAGE OF CRICKET WITH ITS TERMS OF BOWLING A "CHINAMAN" OR FIELDING AT "SILLY-MID-ON", "DEEP IN THE COVERS," OR DOWN AT THE "THIRD MAN."
