No PM’s XI next cricket season?

By 1 June 2009 21

[First filed: May 27, 2009 @ 15:06]

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.

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?

Since when has going to the cricket had anything to do with actually watching the game?

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.

yahoos who know nothing about cricket is what it is all about. Drinking yourselves stupid is a god given right at the PM’s XI… abusing foreigners, only if you don’t get caught.
