Gilchrist's runner

His name is John, he lives in Melbourne and he has ten days to return a red cricket ball to that Australian bludgeoner Adam Gilchrist. The Tonk has more information on the saga surrounding Gilchrist's 1ooth six and the mystery man who ruined the party by running off from the Bellerive Oval. It actually reminds me of a sketch from the excellent Paul Hogan Show, which I remember being screened on Channel 4 in the UK. It features Hogan waiting for a bus somewhere in Australia - a scenario I can imagine John doing after sweating it for a few miles a few weeks ago.
