Phillip Wyatt: Hitting the Wicket
Here Philip describes getting out of playing cricket.
TranscriptThroughout my five years at school, I never liked cricket. I could never understand why they made us play it! Sometimes, if I didn’t want to play, I would deliberately hit the wicket when I batted to get called “OUT”, and you’d have to go cross-country running. I’d rather run than play cricket. Sometimes I’d tolerate a game.
