What a terrible way to die, to be blown to bits at the wicket by an exploding cricket ball, and just one run short of his century! The mess was simply awful, blood, guts, sinew and smashed bone everywhere. It was a terrible sight to have to look upon. The spectators were shocked, as were the players, but no-one more than the wicket keeper and the player in the slips. Somehow I don't think Colonel Hawke-Englishe should have been in the field. For one reason he looked to be a bit too old for an agent, and even if he was surely he should have been retired long ago. Retired or given an office job!
But this death by exploding cricket balls having been successful once, might just work a second time. But this second time the girl who was death was dealing with a far superior opponent, and he was ready for her, as the exact same scenario was being played out at the cricket ground.
But of course as we know both the girl who was death and that of her father Professor Schnipps both died in the same way as the Colonel, but twice over. First blown to bits by a pair of German hand grenades, and then blown to atoms by the exploding rocket!
Be seeing you
