Liking your thinking here Mr HoundThis could be a misprint for Western Furry, in which case all the batsmen would be rabbits.
I suggest we set up our own franchise, to be called Exeter Couldntgiveatossibles. We would change the rules slightly by having two 50-ball overs, thereby avoiding all that tedious changing round. This would have the additional advantage of getting the whole thing over and done with more quickly.
Can we also include:
1. Throwing custard pies at batters who get a first ball duck.
2. Umpires who make two bad decisions put in the stocks for unlimited verbal abuse.
3. Bowlers bowling a no ball to suffer a 50 run penalty and be forced to don a frock to bowl the free hit ball.
4. Abolish the toss and let the crowd have a yay or nay based on the fancy dress that the captains have chosen to wear.
