1st Fifty Years of Shanghai Cricket (Part #4)
Last part of the 1914 newspaper article. Reference to concerns about "modern decadence" were prophetic.

Lumberjack: PooBasher Day
Hello my name is Agung. I am 8 years old and named after a volcano. I just played my first cricket match for the Bashers yesterday. We played at my papa's rugby ground where there were also lots of little Japanese footballers about the same size as me. We played against Pudong Power who were not very powerful. They had one giant man and the rest were normal size. Pudong Power batted first so the Bashers bowled first. Mr Parrot got two fantastic catches when Mr Woodstock was bowling. My papa and Mr Filthy got catches too. Mr Latex let the ball go through his legs and I stopped it. My papa, my brother and I bowled too, but I was the best bowler because I got a very good wicket. The Pudong Power batsman was very angry with the umpire but the Bashers all shouted very loudly. After every over I had to High-5 Mr Parrot. The giant man from Pudong Power hit a six. After Pudong Power batted we had a barbeque and also ice cream. Pudong Power scored 140 runs so the Bashers needed 141 runs to win. I was not allowed to bat because I am too little so I was put in charge of the new scoreboard. Mr Woodstock is a very funny batsman and Mr Parrot and Mr Korean are very good batsmen because they scored many runs. Mr Latex is a very lazy batsman because he did not like to run. Everyone said Mr Filthy was the most boring batsman. Mr Parrot scored the winning four with a fantastic shot so all the Bashers were very happy. We scored 147 because my brother was allowed to bat after we won. Then we all went home on the bus and Mr Latex took his Bashers shirt off and underneath he had a black plastic shirt on that made his tummy look even bigger. Mr Parrot told lots of jokes and told everyone to drink but my brother and I cannot drink beer and the bus had no Coca-Cola so we had to eat sweets. It was a very fun day.
