    Cricket Stories - keep 'em coming

    First day of the Second Test Match of the Bodyline series – Australia to bat first

    England Vice-Captain Bob Wyatt, he of the lugubrious manner and wonderful glottal voice, is in the outfield

    While Fingo is doing his best to blunt the first four pronged pace barrage in the history of the game barrackers constantly shout at Wyatt “Wait till our Don comes in”

    After a while Bradman comes in and is bowled first ball by Bill Bowes (his only wicket of the series)

    Half an hour or so later Wyatt turns to the crowd and enquires “When is your Don coming in”

    Which brings me on to the main point raised by this particular post which is does anyone have a copy of/know how to obtain a copy of the 1982 BBC documentary on the series from which the above came – I have high hopes of LT here!!!

    I do have it and have transferred it to DVD and would happily send you a copy. If you don't mind paying £25 you can buy it here Sporting Gifts - Bodyline.

    I don't have access to email from where I am at the moment so I'll be in touch either tomorrow or Friday (depending on hangover recovery time).
