The Bay and Basin Cricket Club’s junior Blasters will remember the day they strode out onto the famous Sydney Cricket Ground for the rest of their lives.
The Blasters got to show their skills as part of the lunchtime entertainment during the recent Sydney test match against Australia and India.
It was a real buzz for the youngsters, when they ran out onto the field during the lunch interval on day two, and they loved the response from the crowd while they played a game of T20 Blast.
The players loved the experience, as did their proud parents and coaches.
Being at such a match was a first time experience for many of the young players and no doubt it will be a treasured memory.
Their parents were excited to be sitting near former stars and current commentators Shane Warne, Brett Lee and Mark Waugh, while Adam Gilchrist signed shirts/hats/bats.
A number of the children, later in the day, got Nathan Lyon’s signature when he was fielding at fine leg.
It was just a great and positive thing for the kids to do.
