Silly points

A quote from an article by Peter Roebuck

Not, by the way, that excuses are the preserve of youth. Far from it. I once heard a batsman complain that the bowler’s grunt had put him off as he had mistaken it for a call of “no-ball”. On another occasion a dismissed player marched from the ground in the wrong direction in pursuit of some poor fool who had walked in front of the sightscreen just as the ball was being released. That both batsmen were captains of England will not altogether surprise cognoscenti. That both were Yorkshiremen will not surprise them an iota.

BTW, for those of you who are ignorant of Tamil, the title translated in English reads : Lame Excuse
