Scott, Thomas, 1947- :"Not tonight pet, the Aussie cricket team has just lost four games in a row. Any more rapture on top of that could kill me..." Dominion Post, 22 June 2005.

Reference Number: DX-025-141

A man lies in bed reading the newspaper; beside him his wife looms voluptuously with a glass of champagne in her hand. He politely declines her invitation because the Australian Cricket team's losing four games in a row has delighted him so much that more delights might cause his demise. Refers to Australian cricket's poor performance over the last few years.

Historical Notes: "In the first case, it is England: respectively, in Sydney in January 2003, by 225 runs; in Birmingham in September 2004, by six wickets with 21 balls to spare; and in Southampton on Monday, by 100 runs with the tourists failing to use more than a quarter of their allotted overs. In the second case, more sensationally still, it is Bangladesh, who all but stopped the world turning yesterday with a five-wicket victory in Cardiff." Source: The Independent - Online edition.
