Down memory lane: Author and former cricketer Sandeep Patil. Hindustan Times
When Sandeep Patil returned from his first trip to England, he did not forget to buy a good St Peter cricket shirt for his coach. A few days later when the hard-hitter visited the nets to meet his coach, he was surprised that the coach’s shirt was wet and dripping. “What’s wrong, sir? Why is your shirt wet?” inquired Sandeep. “Don’t tell me you don’t know, Sandeep,” replied the coach. “The shirt says ‘wash and wear’.”
Edited excerpt from Caught and Told: Humorous Cricketing Anecdotes by Sandeep Patil and Clayton Murzello, Roli Books, 2007.
