Eat your cricket bat! by bobfoto

Eat your cricket bat!

Summer down under and while many are taking photos of snowflakes and frozen bubbles there are many of us who are running around playing cricket in the yard and watching the Aussies smash the Poms at the world's greatest game of cricket.

Even along the coastal villages of Port Moresby, the early London Missionaries introduced one great thing and that was cricket.

Here at Tatana Island, the young lads and ladies were smacking tennis balls left right and centre!

Photo taken 26 January 2009, Australia Day on Tatana Island, NCD.
Great shot! And yes I love the cricket and now the tennis! Nothing beats AFL for me tho :)

@filsie65 - You know, I'm genetically a Pom? Only my birthplace suggests otherwise, but me accent is as London as.

@bobfoto No wonder you're confused into supporting the wrong team. Hang on - I've heard you speak, the only Londoner who sounds like that is one from Australia..!!
January 28th, 2014  
@filsie65 - That's right.
