Boxing Day Test Match

It’s Boxing Day 2009, and has been our custom for a few years, David & I are at the cricket to see the first day of the match between Australia and Pakistan. We have doom good seats on the first level of the Ponsford Stand.

It’s a nice day with the temperature in the low 20’s and not much breeze. A fine day for cricket indeed! We have a reasonable crowd, although not nearly as large as the ‘sold out’ match between Australia and England a couple of years ago.

It’s just before lunch. Australia won the toss and decided to bat. The score is currenly 0 – 73.

(I’m living in the past – it’s actually the King’s birthday long weekend, but since Queen Elizabeth was on the throne for virtually all my life, its hard […]
