Today’s post is a more personal one. Why? Because I can and I feel like bragging a bit.
When your daughter’s idols are Kagiso Rabada, Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers and Imran Tahir then you know she’s a cricket fan. The difference from other girls who are just cricket fans though is that mine has a set of pads, gloves, a helmet and two bats (one for outdoor cricket and one for indoor cricket) lying around her room along with her girly stuff. When her favorite shirt is her Lighting Legends Indoor Cricket team shirt then you know I have a cricketer on my hands.
Miggie has been playing cricket since grade one and at 11 (nearly 12) she’s mixing it up with the boys in the Newton Park Primary School’s under 13 team. She’s also started playing for DF Malherbe High School’s Girls Cricket First team (under 19) along with playing in the Indoor Cricket junior league. In the photo she’s bowling in the game between DF Malherbe and Linkside High School this week where she took 2 for 8 in her 4 overs, taking her tally to 5 wickets in three games. To say I’m a proud dad is an understatement.
