A Passage to India (Part 2)

This just in from our man aboard the SS Ranjitsinhji steaming back from Calcutta:

HAD REACHED MEDITERRANEAN RETURNING FROM INDIA WITH MCC TOURING SIDE WHEN URGENT CABLE ARRIVED INFORMING THAT TOUR WAS NOT FINISHED STOP MCC STILL HAVE FIVE MORE MATCHES TO PLAY STOP WHY DID NOBODY TELL ME STOP HAVE RUN OUT OF GOOD BOOKS AND TOBACCO STOP GRAEME SWANNS PRACTICAL JOKES RUNNING EXTREMELY THIN STOP TELL MY WIFE TO FORWARD ALL IMPORTANT POST TO NEW ZEALAND AS WILL HAVE TO STEAM STRAIGHT THERE FROM INDIA STOP

Oh well, that’s the toll of being a modern sports journalist, old chap. At least you don’t have to wait a week for the results to appear in The Times.
