    True story

    This is a true story...

    It happened a few weeks ago, I was chosen to play cricket for Australia.
    There I was in a car being driven to the ground. To play cricket. For Australia.

    I was worried...
    Not, as you may think, because I hadn't played cricket for 50 years, and when I did I wasn't very good..
    What was worrying me was that I didn't have a bat, or cricket gear. I hoped someone had some spare gear they could lend me.
    I was still worrying about this when I woke up...

    True story!

    I believe you.
    I have occasional delusions of grandeur as well, never been about cricket though.

    So, what do you have when you have an extremely large red cricket ball in one hand and an extremely large red cricket ball in the other hand?
