Cullen On Clark's Innings

Interesting variation in the delivery and written versions of Cullen's speech yesterday when it can to beach cricket. Does anyone else think the comment about Helen batting well but the people are wanting someone else to have their turn significant?

He was meant to say this

We face a mood which I have likened to a game of beach cricket. The surveys tell us that some people think it’s only fair somebody else has a bat.

Why in his delivery did Cullen refer to Helen as opposed to the Party? And why did he not just read what was written?
