A horse was watching a game of cricket
A horse was looking over a fence watching a game of cricket. 'Any chance of a game?' he asked the captain. At first the captain was taken aback by the talking horse, but when it insisted it was keen to play the skipper thought it might be a bit of a laugh if he sent the horse out as opening bat. The horse shaped up to the first ball and slammed it over the boundary for six. He did the same with the second and third, indeed every ball he hit for six until the over ended. He had been partnered by the captain, and when the bowler ran in from the other end and the captain managed his first hit for a meagre single he called for the horse to run. But the horse just stood there. Frantic calls by the captain to run were ignored and in the confusion the skipper was stumped out. 'Why didn't you run?' roared the captain. 'Listen mate,' said the horse, 'if I could run I would be at the racetrack today, not messing around with this cricket game.
