No PM’s XI next cricket season?

By johnboy - 1 June 2009 21

Cricket Australia has this day announced the schedule of international cricket games for 2009-10.

Ominously there is no mention of a PM’s XI game, or any other game here in Canberra.

No day of drinking in the sun?

UPDATE: A week later Cricket Australia have replied with a somewhat, but not entirely reassuring message:

    Thanks for your enquiry. The Prime Minister’s XI match is a tour game and all Tour Matches are yet to be confirmed. We also liaise with the Prime Minister’s Office on a suitable date for this match every season.

What’s Your opinion?

Ah, I also note that tour matches aren’t included so I suspect that the PMs match will be treated as a tour match and not an international.

So I reckon it’ll still be on.

Who cares? the place is usually full of yahoos who know nothing about cricket drinking – themselves stupid and abusing foreigners why would any cricket fan miss that?

If I were so small I could fit into a sheep that size, I wouldn’t advertise it.

You must go to different matches than I do, I’ve always had great times at cricket matches in Canberra and in Aus in general.

One of the best natured matches I’ve been to was India vs Sri Lanka at Manuka oval, despite there being a large body of both Tamil and Sri Lankan’s in the crowd, (to say nothing 9of Indians!)

Are you sure it wasn’t soccer matches you’ve been watching?

When my husband worked for Lexmark he was called into the PMs XI to fix a printer at the PMs tent. Who brings a printer along to a cricket game? Anyway he had a great day “fixing the printer” (watching cricket).

It would be a shame if Krudd takes away this tradition from Canberrans.
