This summer has been a real treat for cricket enthusiasts.
Throughout December and January, Cricket was regular fixture on TV with the test series against India and the Big Bash on every night. This has probably been bad news in some households where I'm sure the battle for the remote has been fierce.
I was lucky enough to head across to Adelaide for the first test which ended in a spectacular fashion with Australia taking 8 wickets in a session to win the test. On Saturday we also made the trek to Melbourne to watch the local derby in the Big Bash. The whole experience was extremely entertaining from the fireworks and giant flames which you could feel from 200 metres away to the explosive batting. This match also finished in amazing fashion with one run off the last ball to win the game and some controversy in regards to whether the batsman was run out.
Happily for us enthusiasts and sadly for everyone else, the summer of cricket is far from over.With the One Day International Tri Series starting on Friday night followed by the World Cup starting in February there is plenty more cricket to come.
Hopefully Australia can do us proud in the World Cup and bring home the trophy. I know I will be watching, will you?
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi!
