First cricket of the season

Drama Princess is sports mad and very competitive.  In the winter she plays netball and tennis and in summer she does athletics and plays cricket… Yes, you read correctly.  My daughter plays cricket.  She is one of three girls in the Newton Park Primary u/11 team and on Tuesday they played their first game of the season against St Dominic Priory.  I love seeing the reaction of the boys in the other teams when our team arrives.  Not one but three girls. Imagine the embarrassment of going out to a girl or having her klap you to the boundary.

Drama Princess finally got to bowl late in the innings and took a wicket with her first ball

Check out the bowling action

No fingers along the seam.  She rather rolls it over the seam and gets some turn.

Waiting for the next ball

Unfortunately they came up short in the chase.  Can’t wait for the next game.
