Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP
The Outcasts CC is England’s most infamous wandering cricket club. Somehow its pursuits of the noble ideals of cricket seem always to be accompanied by a good deal of beer, sex, and curry – not necessarily in that order – plus the attention of the emergency services. Eventually Cricket recounts the thoroughly unedifying tale of two early season fixtures and confirms — not that there could ever have been any doubt — that a club of this sort should never be let near school cricket.
