We went to the second day of the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne – it was FREEZING (and they say Ballarat is cold).  We didn’t get nose bleeds but we were up high enough to.  No really we had quite good seats, just wish there had been a bit more sun (and a bit better cricket from the Aussies).  We hadn’t been to a Test match before at the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) – have been to ‘Day-Nighters’ but that is quite different.  Siddle bowled and caught very well and was really well applauded by the crowd, except the Barmey Army.    To read a bit about the Ashes click here.

The first wicket of the day


Huddle after a wicket was taken (a rare occasion on the day unfortunately)


1/2 time entertainment – under 13’s girls’ cricket from around the state

See you tomorrow with my first “after Christmas break” card.  Some of the recent posts will be my inspiration.
