Cricket comes to Canberra

Yesterday we had an excellent day at the cricket, watching Johnny Howard’s Prime Minister’s XI play the ex-legendary West Indies. The game was at Manuka (say maa-na-ka) Oval, surrounded by trees and a few thousand people. The PM’s XI clocked up a lazy 316 or so in their 50 overs, and the West Indies made it to about 150 before the storm arrived. Thanks to the wonders of the Duckworth-Lewis system it was decreed that the Aussies were the winners.

lovely day for it
