Paul Daniels (no, no that one), a member of Harry Thompson’s team of hapless (and frequently legless) village cricketers, The Captain Scott Invitation XI, got in touch via my recent post on Harry’s book about the team’s world tour, Penguins Stopped Play. He has now sent me details of the team’s match against Lashings World XI on Friday 2 June at Roehampton in memory of Harry and in aid of The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. Here’s the flyer:
Paul tells me that the Lashings team will be full of test cricketers like Carl Hooper, Richie Richardson, Saqlain Mushtaq etc, etc. He adds with no doubt undue modesty that he is “the idiotic Welshman mentioned in the book who dressed as Father Christmas in Buenos Aires on New Year’s Eve!” Be like me and read Penguins Stopped Play to find out more!
