One by one, the teacher asked each child to stand and describe the job.
There was much laughter and screaming, that is apart from little Tommy.

There were gasps around the classroom.
The teacher acted quickly and dismissed the children, telling them to go out and play.

â€œNo, Miss. He really plays cricket for England, but I was too embarrassed to say.â€
