Storyline

Lady Devereaux offers Simon some sporting memorabilia at knock-down prices provided he captains her staff cricket team against the rival side led by parvenu bookie Bernie Miller. Simon is appalled to find his team comprises Lady Devereaux's elderly staff but when rain prevents the game going ahead Simon takes advantage of one staff member's prowess as a darts player and arranges a darts match instead. Miller's side gets thrashed and he has to pay her the money from the bet that his boys would win. Unfortunately for Simon this means that she no longer needs to sell him her heirlooms.
