MCC Tour to India – 2nd Test report

We’ve been stood here, tapping our feet, waiting for the report to come through from India. Finally, after two days, our patience was rewarded by this from our correspondent. We think he may have had a celebratory beverage or two:

ENGLAND WIN STOP STILL DRUNK STOP NO ONE ABLE TO STOP KP COOK AND SPINNERS STOP SHOULD STOP SAYING STOP IN A TELEGRAM STOP TEE HEE HEE ONTO MY FOURTEENTH BOTTLE OF MADEIRA STOP

We later also received this message:

SORRY FOR PREVIOUS CABLE STOP PLEASE DONT FIRE ME STOP OH GOD MY HEAD HURTS MOTHER OF ALL HANGOVERS STOP ENGLAND DID WIN DIDNT JUST IMAGINE IT MONTY AND SWANN LIKE NEW LOCK AND LAKER STOP BROAD HOPELESSLY OUT OF SORTS STOP LEAVING BOMBAY TOMORROW ON OVERNIGHT SLEEPER OFF TO CALCUTTA STOP
