Suffice to say, while we watched the Women’s T20 get abadoned, my fears for last night’s cricket being a washout were thankfully unfounded.
Newlands was cool, but picture perfect for the evening.
Although this image was a far cry from scenes just a couple of hours earlier.
It was a good night for the kids’ first cricket match, and it was topped off by a last ball win for SA which has obviously set the expectation bar far too high for any future visits to Newlands or any other sporting venue. (It’s worth noting that Alex’s first ever football match finished 7-0.)
Cricket’s very laid back, even when it’s very exciting.
There was plenty of opportunity to take photos. Go look.
