End of an innings

Just read a bit about Bradman's last innings and this is so funny :))

Judith Morris (wife of Arthur Morris): We were sitting with a group of people one day and the conversation turned to Sir Donald's last innings. Arthur said, "Oh, I remember it, I was there." This one gentleman turned to him and enquired, "Oh, were you? What were you in England on, business or holiday?" Arthur replied, "No, I was at the other end."

Eric Hollies:Best ball I have bowled all season, and they're clapping him. (quoted in Rosenwater)

AM:Amid all the tributes and the emotional farewell, my innings of 196 was forgotten. The umpire had enough of me, I guess, and gave me run out.
