To bowl his googlies unseen on the village green | 29-Jan-08

An enquirer is trying to find a poem about cricket heard many years ago on the radio.  Rain had stopped play at Lord's and John Arlott did an impromptu tour of the museum there and referred to a parody which included a line something like:

"to bowl his googlies unseen on the village green"

Can anyone identify this parody and who wrote it?
