            Bruce Taylor's entry into Test cricket ensured an everlasting fame in the game. His Test debut of a century and a five-wicket bag has never been equalled. How to follow that act became the next question. He soon proved that his debut was not some one-off fireworks extravaganza. ...Across a 10-year first-class career there were numerous other feats that seized the attention of team-mates, opponents and not least, the cricketing public. Right-arm bowler, left-hand bat, he could seemingly do it all and while not always on the same day - inevitably if one aspect failed, he made up for it in his other skill-set.

            Very few sane adults agree to lead a tour group of twenty-four high school teens on a two-week packaged tour of Great Britain. Even fewer sane adults agree to manage a cricket team made up of teenage actors and show -offs. Only the craziest adult would agree to do both -- which i...s exactly what a drama teacher named Mary Schaller agreed to do. There were, of course, a few problems -- such as trying to find cricket bats and balls without the help of google or ebay, locating a playing field not near any houses with panes of glass, scouring the libraries for a book -- any book -- on how to play this tradition-bound game, finding a willing coach and most of all, finding a willing co-ed team of English teenagers who might be interested in playing a game of cricket. For drama coach -turned cricket team manager Mary Schaller, the six months between Christmas and the start of the tour in 1988 were akin to Mission Impossible. But it was the kids of Team SOS who kept the dream alive and made it work. Practices in poison ivy-ringed fields amid wax-melting heat did not dismay the kids, no matter how many new obstacles confronted them. And help appeared when it was least expected from a Pakistani cricket club president, a diplomat from the New Zealand Embassy and the night manager of a Mexican restaurant. Even the BBC in far-off England stepped in. Equipment was found and the Marleybone Cricket Club in London sent a book of Cricket Laws. And at the last minute, a British team was located. Now all the SOS needed was a beautiful summer's day in Merrie Olde England to play the game. Team manager and drama teacher Mary Schaller may be better known to millions of her world-wide readers as Harlequin romance author, Tori Phillips. In telling the story of her students' improbable cricket team, Schaller used her journal from 1988 as well reviewing dozens of photographs from scrapbooks of that trip and from the recollections of several former SOS Team members to weave the story of this hil
