THIS CRICKET!

Barracking by the Australians at Test matches reminds me of a cricket match played by Imperial Cavalry .Officers v. Australian Officers at Middleburg in 1900.

Of course we turned out in force and the Tommy wicket-keeper with his "How's that" and flipping the bails off soon obtained the full force of our barrack, for every ball he missed he was advised to get a basket, etc.

Result - accused of calling him a blankard - and ten of us received fourteen days C.B.!
