Aussie Afternoon

Last week was Grand Final week for the Junior Cricket comp in our valley. Played Thursday and Friday afternoons from 4 to 7pm, the top two teams in each age division played for this season's premiership. Our  "Terrific Trio" love their cricket, the twins being the only girls in their team. 

Master T is a valuable spin bowler, just as his older brother, Master J (17) is in the men's/senior's comp.

Two "drinks" breaks gave the players a chance for a quick drink and for each coach to encourage his team. Even though we are three weeks into our autumn, it was still over 30C when they started at 4pm on the second day.

Miss E (4) and I aren't so keen on sitting still for hours....so she had me take photos of her nearby running as fast as she could! 

Most the parents, some grandparents and friends came to watch and support their youngsters. Aussies are generally keen spectators, many of the men enjoying a cold beer or two (or more) while they sat in the shade as the sun sank low.

A convincing win was a great way to end their season. I do believe all the players and spectators enjoyed the afternoon, it was exceedingly pleasant to be in our great outdoors as the week came to a close.

Update: The Editrix (Miss E senior) has correctly commented that there were two more girls in the team but neither played in the grand final. You can tell I'm not a regular spectator, I'm more of a taxi mum.
