Undoubtedly such a victory led to some contention and disagreement between the tourists and the local players as this remained the only match on record played by Nethercote's team.

I am somewhat of a collector, curator and creator of 'imagined' cricket teams. Sebastian Faulks in his homage to PG Wodehouse, Jeeves and The Wedding Bells, introduces the reader to such a team in a match played between Melbury Hall and Gentlemen of Dorset. Both Jeeves and Bertie Wooster take part but under the 'nom de plume' of Lord Etringham and Wilberforce.....

I have friends who tell me that whiskey should be drunk neat whilst others advise dilution, that only a single drop of water at room temperature should be added before consumption - the theory that it will raise the drinks temperature and so release flavour.....
