Cricket

Well, cricket is important to both of us, albeit in slightly different ways

We've both been trying to play as much cricket as possible in New Zealand. Jenny has been playing for Wellington Collegians in outdoor cricket, whilst Andy has played a handful of games for Brooklyn Cricket Club and now a couple of seasons of cricket with Taita. He also runs his work Indoor Cricket team; with generally successful results. The pages linked here show some photos of both playing and watching cricket, under the headings below. There's also a list of (most of) the cricket matches we've seen since we've lived down here.
