Members of a bowls club who met her during a match at Windsor last Sunday have told how she smiled broadly and appeared to do a little fist pump after hearing how England had won the first Test in dramatic fashion. She had gone out to get some fresh air and just stopped to watch the match, to the astonishment of the players.
