To me, this story sounds a lot like PG Wodehouse and I think it is written for a similar purpose.  Wodehouse caricatured the rich elites of England's upper class.  Macdonell is caricaturing more middle-class types who live in small villages.  He does this by poking fun at their cricket match.

In his description of the match, Macdonell continually points out how bad the players are.  He mentions the men who are so old and cautious that they get at best a single out of a ball that should have scored more runs.  He mentions the batsman and his partner who get so confused that they both run for the same wicket.  He ends the game in a tie because both teams are so bad that this is the way it should end.
