Cricket, Cricket, Cricket - 'Tis The Season

So on Friday - I went to the cricket!! It was YAY fun! Went with a couple of mates to see the Black Caps vs Sri Lanka at the Cake Tin.

With the BC's facing the ball first and a lack of boundaries we we're pretty much waiting for SL to take the game, as they were only chasing down 224/9 in the second innings. It was pretty mellow for the day, as cricket is, up til about 2/3's of the way through the second innings when everyone started to realise that the BC's still had a fighting chance... It was one of those games when you think it's a guaranteed loss and then in a big climax the unexpected becomes the expected and it's great fun to watch. Cairns followed by Styris took a wicket each catching out Sri Lanka's last two batsmen.

Sunday's game in Napier didn't go quite so well, Sri Lanka won their only game of the 5 match series. Despite the loss by the BC's, the mighty 2m Peter reached his maiden ODI century, so good on 'em! Definately one to watch.

I have a dilema... This Friday (the 13th) is: my brother's 20th; the day before some relatives go back to England, wherby I will not see them again after this day for several more years; and the 20/20 match at the basin between the Firebirds and Northern Knights.

What does each entail?
  • Mum's cooking a birthday roast
  • The rallies have an 'open house' for the day to go say cheerio
  • The cricket starts at 5pm...

So hence my dilema, I can go see the rallies in the morning, but what about the others??? Any ideas...?
