No unlucky 13 in a year when the Australians are around

Peter May was the mainstay of English batting thorughout the 1950s. 

A special dinner was arranged for the touring Australians in 1956 and May, before entering the dinner hall, left his coat in the cloakroom. The hat-check girl passed him ticket number 13 . 

May handed it back saying, "Not that one, ma'am, if you don't mind- not in a year when the Australians are here."
