The Test

Dad's Army, Series 4 Episode 10 of 13

Classic sitcom about the Home Guard unit of Walmington-on-Sea. Capt. Mainwaring receives a challenge from the Chief Warden to play his platoon at cricket. A team is mustered including Sgt Wilson, who is something of an all-rounder. L/Cpl Jones volunteers to keep the wicket. But, unbeknownst to Mainwaring, the wardens have signed up EC Egan who, were it not for the war, would be bowling for England.

Featuring a guest appearance by English cricket legend Fred Trueman.
