When the number eleven didn't want to come out of the toilet

Once Yorskhire, chasing 105 for victory, found themsleves tottering at 99 for 8.

Don Wilson was out there when number 10 Geoff Cope joined him in the middle. 

Cope came out hearing the encouraging words of number 11 Tony Nicholson. Nicholson was in the toilet and shouted out from there: "I'm in 'ere, and I'm not coming out. See it through."

As soon as Cope met Wilson in the middle, he said, "I have got a message from Tony."

Wilson replied, "I know what his message will be. He won't be in dressing room."
