When selector Len Hutton forgot Graham Gooch's name

When Gooch made his debut, he met Sir Len Hutton at the breakfast table on the morning the match started. 

Hutton greeted him: "Good luck. Er, tell me young man, have you ever played against the Australians before?"

Gooch was startled. He could only reply: "Yes. sir. You're one of the selectors who picked me after I scord 75 against them for MCC at Lord's last week."
