Yesterday was the last day of the soccer season for two of my boys. A couple of convincing victories and an end of season party to round it off. Boots put away, soccer strip washed and shin pads retired.
This afternoon the cricket gear came out. The pitch was a little moist (as in very wet and muddy) but for a while the afternoon was frequently interspersed with balls hitting the roof of the house. Bowling in gumboots slows the bowlers approach run apparently and the ball “sticks” to the pitch meaning bouncers are about knee high.
Still with the Black Caps to be playing soon (XTRAMSN: Sport: Cricket: Black Caps ICC Trophy Squad Named) it was only a matter of time before cricket was back on the menu. (Unless you live in the snow-bound south).
