No Run Horse
The team captain was rather surprised when a horse arrived and asked for a trial. The captain suggested that the horse play in a trial match which was about to begin. 'What number do you bat?' he asked the horse.
'I usually open,' came the reply.
So the horse opened the innings, clad in whites and wearing a brightly coloured cap at a rakish angle over one ear. Every ball he played in the first over was a boundary, four fours and two sixes.
The bowling changed and the batsman pushed the first ball he received gently to the covers and shouted 'One' as he ran. The horse didn't move and the batsman was run out. As he stalked by the horse he growled, 'It was my call. Why didn't you run?'
'Run?' replied the horse. 'Don't be daft, I can't run. If I could run I'd be at Ascot and not playing this bloody stupid game!'
