NTP and I decided to go and spend a day at the cricket on Friday. It was promising to be a fine day with the heat rising early and plenty of sunshine.
There was plenty of fun to be had around the ground (water fights, sombreros, cup stacking and watermelon helmets) and a great game of cricket going on in the centre.
In a batting display Australia knocked up 316 of their 50 overs and the West Indies set off on the run chase with 179 before the thunderstorm stopped play. It is good to see Australias up and coming Cricketers stick in to the Windies. It did look pretty cool rolling in over the Bob Hawke stand though.
