Glory Gardens 3 - The Big Test by Bob Cattell

It really doesn't look like being Hooker's season. Not only does he spend the first match of the league suffering a dropped-catch jinx but now there' civil war in the team over the selections. Sometimes captaining the GLORY GARDENS Cricket Team isn't the fun you might think. It's not the matches that prove the most trouble for poor Hooker - it's the infighting. He has one solution that might work. but making Ohbert captain in his place? That's not strategy - that's suicide.
